Posted:this has probably been discussed before, but I came up a blank... so...

Today I was playing a game on my grandmothers computer where you have to find words in a grid, I saw POI so I clicked it, and it came up with a definition, however I had to think about their definition:
Written by:
POI (n.) A national food of the Hawaiins, made by baking and pounding the kalo (or taro) root, and reducing it to a thing paste, which is allowed to ferment


Thought this was kind of cool, so first we have the HoP cafe, and now we have edible poi... anyone come across this stuff before?

Posted:The edible type of poi was actually the first kind I heard aboout, I think it was in a movie or something. I've never had it though. I think its funny how two totally different things can have the same name. A food and a ball.

Don't mind me, just passing through.

Yes, they're a food, and somewhere in the cooking/mixing/cooling/??? process, they were swung around.
