7-Eleven Food in Hawaii – Poi Malasadas

Pretty tasty good poi flavored malasadas I found in a pastries glass cabinet at 7-Eleven hawaii. A malasada is deep fried sweet dough dessert. In 1878, Portuguese laborers from Madeira and the Azores came to Hawaii to work in the plantations. These immigrants brought their traditional foods with them, including a fried dough pastry called the “malasada.” Today there are numerous bakeries in the Hawaiian islands specializing in malasadas.
