while thinking of hopjes taste, googling fact of that sweet coffee cream candy
tenry have a big responsibility to get that candy <--- coz ricolla candy that she bougth this morning remind me of this hopjes taste :(

tha fact is :
Hopjes (pronounced /ˈhɒpjəs/ in English; also referred to as Haagse Hopjes, hopjes from The Hague) are a type of Dutch sweets with a slight coffee and caramel flavour that originated in the 18th century.

The hopje was named after the baron Hendrik Hop, whose doctor advised him not to drink coffee. He ordered his baker, Theodorus van Haaren, to invent a sweet with coffee flavouring. After some experimenting, van Haaren created a sweet made of coffee, caramel, cream and butter. The enthusiastic baron Hop was keen to let his guests try his 'Hopjes', which quickly gained popularity. Van Haaren's successor eventually even got orders from abroad.

A typical characteristic of the hopje is that it does not stick and that it does not go soft over time. The Hague had a museum called Museum voor het Haagsche Hopje, which is dedicated to the hopje and its history. The museum does not exist anymore.
