Just opened a box of chocs today St Patrick's Day 2012. I was very disappointed with the selection.They just don' make them like they used to.I'd love to know does anyone seriously like orange creams???? Where did the nut clusters go, probably too much bother therefore cost more to make them. Not a caramel in sight either. I don't think I'll be buying what was my favourite in the future. Unfortunately nothing to like anymore. With regret Ann… Read Full Review

I noticed a slight improvement this year on the box design and selection, however, they are by no means what they used to be. Remember the days of 'who knows the secret of the black magic box'? Over here in Canada, they were selling them of after christmas for a $1.89 per box. They simply could not sell them. Until I see a visible attempt at widing back the clock 20 years, Nestle can go jump!… Read Full Review

Black Magic completely downgraded. Why change an exceptional product? Where are the hazelnut cluster, turkish delight, nougat, coffee cream. butterscotch, brazil nut, etc. Even the chocolate is not the same hard, dark consistancy. Gave two boxes for Christmas and kept one for a treat for myself. Hugely disappointing, shall not buy any more. Nestle; WAKE UP !… Read Full Review

You had an opportunity to sell a premium product at a premium price but instead chose to destroy a loved brand with an established following. What sort of idiots do you have working there. Bring back the original as monster munch did recently and could not make them fast enough. … Read Full Review

I even sent an email to Nestles in England about this. How could any company take the product they are so well known for and totally destroy it? This seems to be something a lot of companies have done when they take over an existing product. Maybe they think no one notices or cares or maybe there is just so much more profit to be made by using substandard ingredients. I think most people would pay a premium to purchase the original chocolates packaged in the original box from past years… Read Full Review

My husband of 45 years has always had a soft spot for a box of Black Magic. He was given a box recently and they are all changed, nothing like the lovely chocolates he used to like so much. He loved the soft centers and I liked the toffees and hazelnuts. Nothing for him and none I liked either. Why change something good?… Read Full Review

What a disappointment! The name 'Classic Collection' couldn't be more inaccurate. Where are the classic Black Magic centres - hazelnut clusters, toffee and mallow, butterscotch, turkish delight, caramel to name but a few?
I was given a large box of BM as a present, but finding the selection so unappetising I took it to a social club which I attend. I actually had difficulty in giving them away - because all those present knew what Black Magic used to be like and were not impressed by the… Read Full Review

Was given Black Magic for mothers' day - and what a disappointment. As other reviews have said, they are NOTHING like original Black Magic! Where is the half moon coffee cream, montelimar, and other original chocs? The ones in the box bear no resemblance in appearance or taste to the 'proper' ones. I think the sales pitch and name is totally misleading… Read Full Review

I agree totally with the reviews, black magic are a real disappointment, all the original centre's
gone, now they are the same as all the other truffle chocs which in my opinion are bland and all taste the same.
Come on nestle you must be reading the reviews.sort it out, I want to see black magic originals centers back on the shelfs.

What happened to Black Magic? I thought maybe it was just me until I went looking for reviews and found everybody else asking the same question. Hardly any of the old favourites in there, and what was there was sickly sweet and unpleasant. The box I bought didn't live up to my memories or my expectations, and I note the way the packaging was arranged to make a modest number of chocolates look more generous on the shelf.
I won't be buying them again… Read Full Review

I have so missed Black Magic and when I spotted them in the shops, hints went out to relatives for Christmas prezzy's. I received three large boxes but what a disappointment. Only a choice of six flavours and nothing whatsoever like the originals. I wont be asking for them again. Still have two and a half boxes left, if they were as good as before, all three boxes would be long gone. I would have liked to know how cr*p they were and then I would not of asked for them… Read Full Review
