Taro Desserts – Yay or Nay?

Serious Eat’s Robyn Lee had been tweeting teasers about a taro ice cream post. And it’s here! Apparently, she loves it.

I have had worse luck with taro flavored sweets¬†and am not particularly convinced that I’d like it in ice cream form. I think I’ll stick with taking my taro savory (suddenly have cravings for dim sum…).

Readers, have you had taro desserts or candies before? What do you think?

  • Hmmm, I had taro frozen yogurt in Hawaii a bunch of times, and it tasted awesome. But maybe that was because I was in Hawaii.

  • I bet everything tastes awesome in Hawaii with a happy-because-it’s-freaking-Hawaii boost!

  • I recently tried taro frozen yogurt and it was so good! I would’ve never even thought to try it, except the girl at the counter said it was their most popular flavor. It was a greyish-purple, though, so the color was a bit off-putting, but it was a nice balance of sweet and sour.
