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.
