Droste, in full Droste B.V. Vaassen, is a Dutch chocolate producer founded in Haarlem in 1890. The Drostepastiles are still produced, just like the chocolate letters.

The company, originally a family business, has been taken over several times and has been an independent business unit within the German company Hosta since 1997. The original Droste roastery was still in operation until 2004, as part of Dutch Cacao BV, which had been producing Blookercacao there since 1986, but in that year production moved to a new factory in Amsterdam. Droste has been producing in Vaassen since 1986 and the chocolate products of this company are sold in more than seventy countries. More than 65% of the turnover is realized abroad.

The name Droste comes from the pastry and cake baker Gerardus Johannes Droste from Haarlem. From 1863 he sold in his shop at the Verwulft in Haarlem (today there is a McDonald's branch) among other things chocolate pastilles (round, flat chocolates which he calls Pastilles Droste). In 1890 he opened a factory in that city.

The name Droste has become known not only for the chocolate sold under that name but also for the Droste effect: the self-repeating picture in a picture, so named after the image on the packaging of Droste chocolate as it has been used since about 1900. printed.

The packaging shows a nurse with the same packaging in her hands. The suspected artist is the Haarlem advertising artist Johannes Misset, inspired by a pastel by the Swiss painter Jean Etienne Liotard: La serveuse de chocolat, also known as La belle chocolatière. This drawing, which refers to the health benefits of chocolate, cannot be used in the United States for legal reasons.
