Not any more. The dark chocolate that gave them the "black" has gone and there is no "magic" in any of the fillings. A good product ruined… Read Full Review

“Disappointing”

Written on: 04/01/2014

My sister and I looked forward to opening a box of black magic, remembering all the yummy centres we used to enjoy. What a disappointment! Only six different centres. What happened to montellimar, Turkish delight, whole cherry, butterscotch, coffee cream, whole almond, hazelnut cluster, marzipan.....who knows the secret of the black magic box? Obviously not Nestle!… Read Full Review

I agree with you about Black Magic, I like hard centre chocolates, not the squashy ones! I have just found Fortnum and Masons 'hard and nutty' chocolates - a bit pricey, but lovely!!

“Another poor quality product”

Written on: 29/12/2013

All products nowadays are going up in price, down in size and down in quality, we are being conned, Black Magic Chocolates are at the top of the list. We have recently lost our son (during Xmas 2011), Christmas is a very low time for us, so as a special treat I bought my wife a large box of Black Magic, they were always her favourite and she hadn't had any for years, when she opened them she said that there was something wrong they weren't the dark chocolate she expected, she then tasted one… Read Full Review

“Rip Off”

Written on: 26/12/2013 by JoJaJo (1 review written)

Bought these chocolates for a Christmas present for my wife. I used to buy her a box every year but have not done so for the last 2 years. Absolutely disgusted to find that there was a selection of 6 only, of which 2 were nut based. The others are cheap and boring fillings. These should not be sold under the Black Magic name as they are nothing like the chocolate selection they used to be. The name should be qualified to show that there is a limited selection. Although the chocolate selection… Read Full Review

“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 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

Maureenp's Response to kimbles's 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?
