A culinary tradition in Hawaii, poi is made from the cooked stem of the taro plant, which is mashed into a thick paste. It sometimes is fermented for a few days to give it a tangy flavor.
ThisWeek staffers answer the question: How does poi sound?
Dennis Laycock: Not that great, but I'd try it.
Scott Hummel: I tried it once – once.
Andrew King: This is another obscure dish I had to Google. I'd definitely try it, but I have absolutely no frame of reference for what it might taste like.
Sarah Sole: I'd try it. I like taro bubble tea.
Neil Thompson: Hawaiian.
Abby Armbruster: Hmm, I don't know. If it was the dessert version, I would probably try it, but I don't think I could finish an entire bowl of it.
Lee Cochran: Not very appealing.
Lisa Proctor: It sounds like something you better be open to trying if you go to Hawaii.
Nate Ellis: Probably however it's pronounced.
