One unfortunate day, in his attempt to see his beloved, Tarlà hid among the flour sacks of the pastry shop, waiting to meet the young woman.

To his surprise it was the baker chef who he found and to his bad luck the flour sacks made him uncovered when he made him sneeze, “xui-xui”, thus being the name of the local catalan sweet.
