Say it with us, Crow-TEE-ah.

That's the name of Walmart's new hybrid bakery item, the Crotilla. It's a combination of a croissant and a tortilla and Walmart says it can be used for everything from breakfast sandwiches to Indian food. 

Remember the "Cronut" trend? This one is very similar, but not as sweet as the doughnut, croissant combo. 

Bradlee Underwood, senior buyer for Walmart Bakery says "we know customers, especially millennial customers, are hungry for new food trends and cool ways to experience food, and we want to be a destination for that."

Walmart says the product is made with all butter, and baked fresh in their bakery every day. 

Make breakfast and dress up your Crotilla with Nutella and bananas, or top a burger for lunch and wrap it in a Crotilla, or you could make a mini pizza in the toaster oven for a fun dinner.

The new product is available in 832 Walmart stores nationwide and you can purchase them in packs of eight for $3.98 in the fresh bakery department. 

Walmart even took the new product a step further and declared April 25 "National Crotilla Day."
