Nobody has ever heard of Kissel.

Lol, true. Wikipedia has, though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kissel.

These very Finnish words are tricky -- to translate or not to translate? I personally think pulla should have been translated, and maybe salmiakki. But pesäpallo not. Oh well, it's up to the volunteer contributors.

The kissel should be accepted

Looks like the Russian version of kiisseli. It's not English and there is no English equivalent so it's a bad example!

Then "The kiisseli is sweet" should be accepted.
