I am dating a Dutch guy and he is CRAZY for candy from the homeland. I'm talking babbelaars (butterscotchesque hard candy), hopjes (coffee flavored hard candy) and salted and double salted licorice known as drop (hard, chewy or gummy).
There's some place in San Jose called Holland's Best or something, but that's a tad far to drive for candy. And I know Miette Confiserie in Hayes Valley carries a great selection of these but I have to balk at the prices (12 bucks a pound!) Is there anywhere else to find these things, kind of on the cheap?
Thanks for any suggestions, Chowhounds!
