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

Called in to the local store and saw Black Magic Chocolates on offer couldnt resist. I tried 4 on the way home the rest are destined for the bin they are absolutely AWFUL: Bland, no rich dark taste, no variety (they all tasted the same YUK) Do Nestle think we are so gullible that they can con us into comming back for more even Oliver would choose a second helping of gruel… 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

Black magic used to be my favourite chocolates. I was given a box of the Black Magic Classic Favourites and was very disappointed. The cream ones were completely different and the chocolate on them all not as gppd. This is very disappointing as I only like dark chocolate. Bring back the old recipe!!!… Read Full Review

“Nothing to compare with the original flavours”

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

My husband bought me a box of Black Magic recently.....and my heart sank! Black Magic chocolates used to be my most favourite chocolates and I knew all the flavours and for me, they surpassed every other chocolate on the market. Since Nestle changed them from 12 flavours to 6, there is no comparison to what we had years ago. Who on earth wants a huge box of chocolates with only 6 flavours - I threw most of them in the bin! I used to love the Coffee Cream and Toffee and Mallow most of all… Read Full Review

You are so right. The Nestle folks paid good money for Rowntree's and are debasing the good name they bought.

Who do they think they are fooling? The flavors are crass knock-offs and the chocolate is lacking any tartness or mouth-impacting flavor. In the past they were a favorite we bought on special occasions for years.

Now ... where is the sensual treat to look forward to? I will look elsewhere.

I am ashamed to have given these to my family as a traditional tasty gift, It was a horrible rip-off that disappointed every recipient. . I will never purchase these again, and warn all my friends and hundreds of acquaintances.

How can Nestle be so blind and stupid. People buy good food to put in their mouths where taste buds exist and special sweet treats are appreciated. This is not a casual change in a recipie and cannot be cloacked from the suckered purchasers.

It is a fraud to use a good anme to squeeze out the final purchase by cloacking poor quality under a high quality name.

What's next? Asphalt flavoring??? Under the name Nestle's cocoa?

I will be twittering a link to these comments and hope that thousands of others do too.

Shame Shame. Shame on Nestle. Changing the whole promise of a brand to flip it into a better short-term money-maker is messing with our trust. Call it what it is.That's consumer fraud.

Written on: 05/04/2012

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

“Not what they used to be”

Written on: 05/01/2012 by MONTY2011 (1 review written)

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

Written on: 27/02/2012

I couldn't have put it myself better. As a child in the mid 80s I loved it when my mum bought a box of Black Magic. It was a special treat and the selection was amazing back then... toffee and mallow, hazelnut cluster, lemon, raspberry and orange creams... and so much more. They were lovely. I had a box recently and couldn't believe the selection had been greatly reduced and the quality of the fillings awful. I know the chocolate market is much more sophisticated now but they have given up on this box of chocolates and decided put it at the cheapest end of of the market. So disappointing. But then I have to say sadly I can see other brands getting worse... you know who you are Green & Black's :'-(

“Utterly Disappointing.”

Written on: 03/01/2012 by jennniferraw (1 review written)

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

“Black Magic Chocolates Suck! Nestles must be crazy. ”

Written on: 22/12/2011

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

“Why have black Magic been changed?”

Written on: 09/09/2011 by janephilippi (1 review written)

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

And add to the list of disappointing new age improvements to our old favourites: Crosse & Blackwell Christmas Puddings, now dreadful. Even Bisto is now filled with flour and nothing like the original. I also complained recently to Sunlight dishwashing detergent for diluting their product. No answer.
