Monday mornings require coffee! In Den Haag we like Haagse Hopjes, it’s coffee and caramel flavoured candy. The story goes that this candy is named by his founder, Baron Hendrik Hop. He was a coffee addict and one night he forgot to remove his coffee with sugar and cream from the stove. The next morning he found his ‘chunks’ of coffee. This doctor told him to stop drinking coffee, so he asked his neighbour to make him some of the chunks again. In 1880 they named the chunks Haagse Hopjes. Years later J.P. Rademaker became one of the biggest producers of the now famous candy, he was one of the first who used the wrappers on candy. After years of lawsuits between different producers, this brand is still the biggest. Have you ever tried one?
