The taste of poi : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

I once tasted poi from a can, and to my jaded palate it was rather, um, shall we say "bland". Is this how people really eat it, or are you supposed to do something to it to liven it up?

It is bland, but when eaten with all the other Hawaiian foods, they mix well 8))). Some tourist have eaten it with sugar and milk, just like some put butter and sugar on rice.
