Bij Kwij #13

The effect is named after a particular image that appeared, with variations, on the tins and boxes of X cocoa powder, X being one of the main Dutch brands. It displayed a nurse carrying a serving tray with a cup of hot chocolate and a box of the same brand.An Image exhibiting the effect depicts a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. This smaller version then depicts an even smaller version of itself in the same place, and so on.  It is a visual example of stange Loop ( proposed by Douglas Hofstader in Godel , Escher and Bach). What is this brand after which this effect is named?

Droste was the right answer
