Aloha! Have a safe trijp back! I really love Hanalei Poi - so do our dogs. The thing is I
have not tried the other you mention but I would imagine it is really really good! Taro
brand is o.k. but it's Hanalei for us. For your travel purpose it does come in that great
sturdy plastic container. It is quite thick so you may want to dilute a bit. We don't
get the Waipio over here unfortunately. A hui hou! :biggrin:
