Karamelliverhot was a goblin famous for inventing candy. When nearby human settlements discovered the taste of sweets, they saw it as a threat and strung Karamelliverhot's body into a curtain whose threads were candied. Karamelliverhot's name soon got adopted into Finnish for a word meaning "candy curtain." Of course, even now, most Finnish have no idea what context to use the word in.

Despite Karamelliverhot's death, candy became popular as the tradition of candy-making was carried on in his family and diffused across the continent, leading to other delicacies such as cakes, pies, and mustamakkara. It eventually was adopted into human cuisine when an antidote for Over Grim Syndrome (OGS) was needed, but its effectiveness is questioned by modern scientists.
