Have you eaten poi before?
Poi is a thick paste-like substance made from the taro root.
Taro is mashed with a little water until the poi is made.
The consistency is often referred to as "one finger, two finger, three finger poi" as Hawaiians used to and/or still do eat poi "scooping" it up with their fingers.
Growing up in Hawaii, we were often given poi in place of baby food.
And as a child, I remember sprinkling some sugar on my poi to sweeten it up, making it easier for me to eat.
The other day, I was checking out the Foodland ad and this caught my eye...Taro Brand Poi Blueberry Granola Bowl...what?!
The girl at the seafood counter was nice enough to show me where to find it in the refrigerated section (Thank you!)
It's 5 ounces (about 1/2 a cup) of poi, 1.5 ounces granola (almost 3 Tablespoons), 1 ounce of fresh blueberries (almost 2 Tablespoons), 2 packets of honey (8 grams = about 1/2 Tablespoon) and a spoon.
I didn't use the honey because when I put the fruit and granola into the poi it was sweet enough for me.
At $4.59 (plus tax), it isn't very cheap, but it is a nice breakfast/snack that you can enjoy on the go.
I haven't had poi in awhile, so this was nice.
I hope to have this again the next time I'm home.
