Ok... so it is with SOME SHAME that we report... John and I have made secret trips to McDonald's... BUT WE HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE.
You know the apple pies they sell back there on the mainland? Well here in Hawai'i they make VERY SPECIAL tropical varieties. Depending on the time of year they have Banana, Mango, Haupia (coconut) + Taro.
The first one we tried was back in March. We were a bit skeptical, but were pleasantly surprised.
It was banana... not just a strange gelatinous pudding type filling... but real chunks of banana. Last week we tried the TARO, which is a purple root vegetable that POI is made from here in Hawai'i. The taro was even BETTER than the banana. We intend on on trying every version... so stay tuned.
