      Haha, no definitely not. I think there could be a market for a chocolate based galaxy formation simulation though.

      The answer to this question is no, in the same way that a Mars bar has very little to do with Mars! It does taste good though.

      Not in anyway. It’s just a cool name they use I think.

      I know how to simulate a galaxy with milk in a coffee cup. I have a video – I’ll put it up on you tube for you.

      I really wish that the real Galaxy was smooth, chocolatey and edible! I love it too…. But there aren’t any real similarities between the chocolate and the 400 billion balls of burning gas spinning at thousands of miles an hour through empty space…. πŸ™

      Maybe when they pour the chocolate into the mould they do a kind of spiral motion, you can sometimes see that in the bottom of the chocolate bar – that looks a bit like the spiral of our Milky Way galaxy πŸ™‚

      Not very much I’m afraid. I suppose the bubbles are a bit like voids between galaxies and the chocolate like the inter-galactic medium….but not really.
