Chocolate? About zero. Diamond? About 100%, if our observations are correct, though it's about the size of a planet, astronomers might call it something else like a stellar remnant.

So what's the likelihood of a planet consisting purely of chocolate?
That's the real question at hand here. Near infinite Universe, near infinite permutations and possibilities, quantum fluctuations and BAM! Chocolate world.
The newly discovered cosmic diamond is a chunk of crystallized carbon 50 light-years from the Earth in the constellation Centaurus. (A light-year is the distance light travels in a year, or about 6 trillion miles.) It is 2,500 miles across and weighs 5 million trillion trillion pounds, which translates to approximately 10 billion trillion trillion carats, or a one followed by 34 zeros.
