Caramell is a Swedish musical group, formed by singers Katia Löfgren and Malin Sundström and producers Jorge "Vasco" Vasconcelo and Juha "Millboy" Myllylä. All except Vasconcelo (who is of Portuguese descent) and Myllylä (who is of Finnish descent) come from Sweden. The current members of this successful band (now known as Caramella Girls) as of 2008 are Caramella Loppun (Mindy) Leader played by Racheal Alicost, Caramella Cham (Verá) played by Lucky McSozzen, and Caramella Gardeii (Nadine) played by Karin Ellis.
They are best known online for the internet phenomenon known as "Caramelldansen", a looping Flash animation showing anime characters Mai and Mii from the Japanese visual novel Popotan. The animation includes a sped-up version of the song remixed by speedycake called "Caramelldansen," which means "The Caramell Dance", from Caramell's Supergott Album. Having taken off as an Internet meme, the popular Caramelldansen animation has been duplicated with characters from various anime and video game series, among others.
The band split up in 2002, but reformed in 2008 as Caramella Girls due to the sudden success of their song "Caramelldansen". Caramella Girls released their latest single "Boogie Bam Dance" in March 2011.
In 2011, Caramella Girls performed together with the original Caramell members as part of the We Love The 90's tour, performing new versions of some of their older hits such as "Om du var min" and "Efter plugget".
Later that year in 2011, the Caramella Girls performed at the UppCon in Uppsala.
In May 2012, Caramella Girls launched their new look on their website and their Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages.
