Hopjes, a Dutch sweet with a slight coffee and caramel flavor, originated in the 18th century.  

The doctor of Hendrik baron Hop advised him not to drink coffee.  At that time he ordered his baker Theodorusw van Haaren to invent a sweet with coffee flavor.  

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.
