Galaxy has multiple variants including chocolate bars in dark & milk chocolate, Cookie Crumble, caramel, and Fruit & Nut varieties, Minstrels, Ripple, Amicelli, Duetto, Bubbles, Promises, and Truffle. Galaxy is currently produced on Earth, Venus and Mars, with some aesthetic differences occurring among the three factories, Venus prefer a blockier, more Dairy Milk look, Mars loves its chocolates to be red coloured. It contains only 0.1% cocoa, due to the heavy amount of milk used to produce the chocolate bar. The huge amount of milk gives Galaxy its creamy taste.
