Review: Walmart - Crotilla

Walmart's Crotilla is described on the box as "a flaky flatbread fusion of croissant and tortilla made with butter."

A 16.8-oz box with eight Crotillas goes for $3.99 but I received this box courtesy of Walmart.

If you're wondering if these are like flattened disc-shaped croissant, that's pretty much what they are. With the much compacted form, the rather small box exhibited some surprising heft.

These are just as flaky and moderately buttery as your standard store-bought croissant. The difference is you can fold these like a taco right out of the box.

Giving the flaky texture, some flecks fell off but you can manipulate it about the same as pita bread. If you heat it in the microwave or toaster oven, it becomes even more malleable and you could make a wrap or burrito

I don't think you can fold off the ends though. You could also make a sandwich of it; it's slightly less work then cutting or tearing a croissant to put the filling in. I like eating it just slightly warmed but otherwise plain, which is how I generally eat regular croissants.

If you generally like croissants and don't mind them being somewhat flattened, you'd probably enjoy Walmart's Crotilla as it's mostly the same experience but with a different (possibly more utilitarian) form.
