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

Nestle have ruined the Black Magic selection. The current chocolates are nowhere near the standard of the originals and there is a very limited selection. As an aside, Nestle have also ruined KitKat by using a disgusting bland "chocolate" instead of the original Rowntree chocolate. I would have given them no stars if it had been possible!… Read Full Review

Black Magic were always my favorite. I opened a box last night to find 6 chocs which were nothing like the originals. Where are the montelimar, the choc brazil , coffee cream and turkish delight. I was so disappointed, and I still have another larger box to open. On looking at that, I see it has the same 6 chocs in. What on earth has happened?? There is no smell on opening the box of the deliciously dark chocolate, and in fact I thought they were milk chocolates!!
I believe these boxes of chocs… Read Full Review

The best place for the new clasic black magic is flushed down the toilet as they taste just about as disgusting as what the toilet is meant for !! and the clowns that disposed of the originals and came up with this load of cr*p should be sacked… Read Full Review

Sadly very disappointed. The six 'favourites' I don't think so and not the old hard dark chocolate. The most disappointing was the Haselnut one. In times past there were three hazalnuts in a cluster with a hard crunchy base - now its one nut in mush. The Almond chocolate has barely a piece of almondin mush. The fudge is sickly sweet - nothing to bite into. Caramel one is too soft - well I gave up then and took the box to work hoping that others might eat them, but not so. Many of my colleagues… Read Full Review

Hving been given a box of Black Magic Chocolates for Christmas I was really looking foreward to the rich dark chocolate and wonderful flavours I remember from earler years, especially the coffee cream, my mums favourite. I was absolutely disgusted to find a selection of sickly sweet non-descript "chocolates" if they could be called that. To be honest we tried about half a dozen and threw the rest in the bin. What an absolut con
I certainly will think twice about buying any Nestle product in… Read Full Review

Zero rating. What a disappointment. Waste of money. Horrible, sickly centre.
I only tasted one and am going to return the rest.
Does Nestle not read these reviews? Why are they ignoring them? It would be better to stop producing this `imposter.`
I didn`t like anything about them - well the box looked good.
What would I have like to know before I made my purchase? It should carry a warning label… Read Full Review

Well done Nestle you have managed to wreck a much loved brand of chocolates. You have managed to relaunch with only six centres none of which I like, needless to say I will not be asking my family to buy these again. Why try to fix something that wasn't broke… Read Full Review

My daughter bought me a box of Black Magic for Christmas. They were always my all-time favourites as I love plain chocolate. What a let down! The chocolate was sickly and awful and only 6 centres????? That was bad enough but the centres were truly dreadful. I'm not looking forward to telling my daughter but I wouldn't want her to waste her money again and I certainly will tell everyone else I know so they won't waste their money either.
You should be ashamed of yourselves, Nestle, putting… Read Full Review

Most disappointed in the new black magic box. Where are the old favourites like montelimar, hazel cluster, butterscotch, coffee cream, praline cracknell. I was brought up on the original black magic and there is no comparison… Read Full Review

I am in total agreement with all the negative comments about Black Magic chocolates. Nestle should be charged for fraud or misrepresentation. Their so called Black Magic chocolates are awful. They are certainly not genuine dark chocolate. Thank goodness for Thorntons… Read Full Review

I totally agree with all the other comments and when I phoned to complain I was told that they were no longer made in this country so I feel we will never get the old Black Magic back they are gone forever. Where I live we have a small chocolate factory which has just opened its own shop and they are the nearest to the old Black Magic taste i can find they are expensive but you get what you pay for. Nestle obviously do not want our custom. I think it would be a good idea to make it clear on the… Read Full Review

Oh what a disappointment.
I was involved in the surveys which were done with regard to the come-back of the Black Magic Classic chocolates. While a lot of time was wasted questioning us on packaging and box appearance I really thought that sense would prevail and the old-style packaging and - more importantly - the old-style chocolates would make a reappearance.
How wrong could I be!
I'm sitting here puzzling as to what's worse - the new-style sickly mush which apparently is all the rage, or… Read Full Review
