“Black Magic? Sad disappointment”

Written on: 06/09/2013

Every year since I was quite young, my Dad would buy me a box on my birthday and for Christmas as an extra treat, I had a routine in which order I ate them in and saved the liquid cherry until last. About 1993, he again bought me a box as an extra treat and off I went to open them. OMG, the lemon centred one, the butterscotch, the liquid cherry had all gone and what was left was a very poor substitue for my one time favourite chocolates. I wrote to Nestle and stated my disappointment and asked… Read Full Review

I had not tried Black Magic for years (I am 63) and I have just been given a box. These chocolates bear no resemblance to the lovely chocs of the past. The current box is full of dreadful sweets called Black Magic but they are nothing to do with the real Black Magic Chocolates. Could someone bring these back please please!

I agree! They should change the name, it's very misleading!
I agree and they should no longer be called Black Magic! The Magic has gone!
In September 2006, it was announced that the manufacture of Black Magic was relocating to the Czech Republic with the takeover by Nestle.
Is this why the centres have all changed and the chocolate is ghastly?
Change the name Nestle, as the Magic has gone!

“BlackMagic ruined”

Written on: 24/05/2013 by cocoafree (1 review written)

Black Magic used to be a favourite with me. I was recently thrilled to receive a box as a present. What a disappointment: hardly any varieties, all squishy centres, cheap greasy chocolate, nasty-tasting centres grossly overloaded with sugar. They were a travesty of the old Black Magic and Nestle should not be allowed to use this name for this unpleasant and overpriced product. Never again!… Read Full Review

“None in Australia”

Written on: 29/04/2013 by Pattifran (1 review written)

I was wondering how come Black Magic is no longer available in Australia. On reading all these comments I'm rather glad I can't get them any more. Why do these companies have to change beautiful things just to make more money which they won't because nobody will buy them particularly at $33 per box???!!!! from Trish Franklin 1/59 Milton Ave., Paradise Point Qld 4216… Read Full Review

“What a disappointment”

Written on: 13/04/2013

What has happened to the Black Magic chocolates I used to know - (I remember them coming in a proper box with a real red ribbon) - the chocolate is terrible and the fillings - where are all the nutty and hard centres? Picking through a box used to be sheer delight - now Never Again… Read Full Review

“What about the packaging?”

Written on: 31/03/2013

I bought some for the loved one this Easter and when opened we were both disappointed at the lack of choice. I fully agree with the remarks of all the previous reviewers regarding the deteriorating quality of these once-great chocolates. I am convinced they are not as dark (less cocoa content?) and all the intersting old centres have been consigned by Nestle to history. Only the flavour lingers on in my taste buds. But what about the packaging? Absolutely dreadful. Where has the red tastle on… Read Full Review

“What A Disappointment”

Written on: 15/03/2013

I was given a box of Black Magic for the first time in years and was delighted because they were an old-time favourite. What a let-down....the chocolate isn't as dark or rich as before and the centres are all smooth, tasteless, sickly mush....nothing tasty at all. As soon as I started to mention them at work, my colleague knew what I was going to say,so I know it's not my taste-memory that's gone wrong.They are now very nasty chocolates. No more Black Magic for me thanks… Read Full Review

“black magic is magic no more!”

Written on: 01/02/2013 by chocylover711 (1 review written)

I was given a large box of black magic for Christmas but there were only six varieties of chocolate in it. What happened to the delicious cherry ones ( with real cherries), the brazil nut ones and my all time favourites - the coffee creams. In fact where can you get coffee creams now. The flavours left were non-descript and boring. The chocolate does not even taste the same. Nestle have ruined this formerly brilliant treat. Don't bother buying, its a waste of money. When will the manufacturers… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2013

had a box for christmas, what a disappointment, used to be my favourite but I wouldn't want anyone to waste their money again. none of my favourites and white chocolate drizzled over what few were in the box, the idea is I like dark chocs not white. I couldn't even say I enjoyed what few chocs were there. where is the choc brazil?

“Favourites? no more !!!”

My partner bought me a box of Black Magic chocolates at Christmas. These USED to be my favourite chocolates!! What happened to the brazil nut , hazel nut cluster, liquid cherry, marzipan and the other old ones that were always my favourites ? I have watched over the years as my favourite chocs have gradually diminished until now none of them are even enjoyable and i just wouldn't thank you for a box of these!! Only 6 chocs?? Why have you SO spoiled what once ( many years ago) was a fantastic… Read Full Review

We used to have a box every week but stopped not long after the full selection stopped.We had a box this christmas and now I know why we stopped,because there is some missing.I can't understand why they don't sell a full box and the new one together. Surely other people think this way.Come on Nestle listen to your fans !… Read Full Review

I completely and utterly agree with the reviewer above . Yesterday I had the biggest shock when I found out my mum's favourite box of chocolates have gone to the dogs ...my mum would turn over in her grave if only she knew.
What has happens to the rich dark chocolate , exuberant designs ...the cherry liqueur ...marzipan ...truffels etc.
Nestlé have ruined something that was very special to me and like the reviewer above I will never by this product again

What happened to the dark chocolate and the intense flavours. Best chocolates ruined. I thought they would have learned from what they did before when they produced flavoured solid chocolates that didnt sell. Dont they know their customers. I used to buy them for their dark chocolate and lucious filling. I can buy average plain chocolates from any other lidl store or similar. Disappointed!

“not the same”

Written on: 05/11/2012 by fireisland (1 review written)

I treated myself to a box of Black Magic chocolates as I had been working very hard and thought I deserved a treat. I had not had any for a few years and was really looking forward to delicious, sophisticated dark chocolates with an impressive variety of unusual fabulous fillings. What a disappointment! Very poor variety of fillings; disliked the raspberry and orange ones. Horrible consistancy. In the past the cream fillings were silky and flowing. I will not buy them again. Nestle, what… Read Full Review

“Black magic”

Written on: 04/11/2012

When I was a child I remember my dad coming home every Friday evening with a box of Black Magic. They were the family's favourite chocolates. My daughter recently bought a box for me. I was delighted until I opened the box! It got much worse when I tried them - they were awful. I am a real chocoholic and can honestly say that this is the only time I have been unable to eat any - I tried some of them and threw the rest in the bin! If there was an option to give no stars I would… Read Full Review
