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

Written on: 01/01/2011 by Lawski (1 review written)

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

Written on: 31/12/2010

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

Written on: 01/01/2011

Totally agree with comments, I have also phoned & emailed them & been told the same.
<br/>I am emailing them again right now but no doubt it will be another waste of time.
<br/>would appreciate the website or name of the company near you who make black chocolates.

“Oh what a disappointment. ”

Written on: 31/12/2010

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

“I bought these for Christmas as I've always been a fan...”

Written on: 31/12/2010

I bought these for Christmas as I've always been a fan and prefer dark chocolate, so I was very disappointed to see what looked and tasted like milk chocolate, with a really poor selection, consisting of 6 of the most unpopular fillings. I called the free number on the back of the box to complain and was told that "they are dark chocolate" and some only appear to be milk due to the mix they use!!??… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2010

We bought a box of Black Magic this year for Christmas and they are aweful. A limited selection of chocolates inside and the taste is nothing like what they used to be. Since RM was bought out by Nestle, the quality has gone downhill. They are expensive and of poor quality… Read Full Review

“Black Magic Originals are good but where are the...”

Written on: 29/12/2010

Black Magic Originals are good but where are the chocolate centres I loved for years? Where is the hazelnut cluster, marzipan, coffee cream, toffee and mallow, cracknel, nougat, chocolate covered brazil nut and turkish delight? Now they were centres to savour. Bring them back, do a Black Magic Classic. Sometimes trying to keep up with the trends is a move backwards. Why not try a proper move backwards to classic centres… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2010

My wife is a lover of original Black Magic and was looking forward to opening the box of Black Magic 'Classic'at Christmas. What a disappointment. Most are still in the box. The ones eaten both the chocolate and centres were sickly and not at all like Black Magic original. In my opinion the 'Classic' label is a misrepresentation. From a once favourite dark chocolate assortment these are now not even on the list.
One star is overating this product… Read Full Review

As a fan of the original Black Magic chocolates i am so upset that you have given this box of disgusting offerings the black magic name.Where is the original recipe.The overall rating and value star given but should have had a minus in front of them.The orange centre does not have a strong orange flavour and is too hard the chocolate should be dark and plain.The overall appearance is bad cheap looking.They were an xmas pressie from my daughter,i wish she had kept her money… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2010

Both my husband and I love dark chocolate. On buying a couple of boxes for Christmas I felt so disappointed to the point I couldn't finish them.

The taste of your chocolate is poor now to the point I won't even buy them until your standard improves… Read Full Review

“Having been a great lover of "the old Black Magic"...”

Written on: 27/12/2010

Having been a great lover of "the old Black Magic" chocolates it was with great pleasure that I was given a box for a present.

The word disappointment on trying the flavours do not adequately describe my reaction to this new product.

Quite frankly they are disgusting! With an over powering sweetness and very little flavour the chocolates have been thrown away - never again.

Written on: 14/12/2010

My partner and I have always loved dark, bitter chocolate and the Black Magic Assortment were firm favourites.

I was delighted when I saw them on sale in Tesco after some absence from the shelves. What a an appalling disappointment they were; we really couldn't believe they were genuine and were convinced they had been faked! The overwhelming sweetness almost made us feel sick. The chocolate covering was a pale imitation of what it once had been and nothing like dark, plain chocolate. The… Read Full Review

Janet Koh's Comment

Written on: 14/12/2010

I found this review very helpful because...I share exactly the same opinion. What ON EARTH made Nestle change a winning team?
<br/>
<br/>The guys on quality control who gave the go ahead for such a sick-making confection should be FIRED. This product used to be an ideal and thoughtful gift for a loved one.
<br/>
<br/>Now I'm afraid it would be an insult. Bring back the original Magic, please.

I certainly will not buy Nestle Black Magic again. After many years of being a supportive husband of a BM-dependent wife, she has overcome her condition completely ... thanks entirely to Nestle's appalling effort at re-launching the brand. Lets not beat about the bush - yuk… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2010

Bought these for my wife's birthday. An old favourite. No dark chocolate and lost all the great centres. What a disappointment. Straight in the bin. No wonder Tesco has dropped them to less than half price. You shouldn't be able to give them away. Trust Nestle to mess up a great confectionery! Haven't they heard of trying market research before launching a product? Could have been thought up by the losing team on The Apprentice!… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/11/2010

Black Magic was my favorite chocolates of all time, the new selection seems to have some of my favorite centres missing ie. coffee cream, + cherry + mallow & fudge, & seems to concentrate on hard centres it's a pity as I was so pleased to find them back on sale, Why not make them the same as the original?… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/08/2010

These chocolates are terrible!!! I grew up loving Black Magic chocolates, back when they were made by Rowntree. All through the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's, these were my favorite chocolates. All my family and friends loved them -- not any more. The chocolate used to be dark -- not any more. The chocolate wasn't as sugary sweet as the cheap chocolates you buy at the grocery store -- not any more. The menu inside used to show a wonderful variety of different chocolates that I would look… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2010

My mum is or shall I say was an avid fan of Black Magic chocolates she is 79 and I am 53 I was brought up on them. You can imagine our delight when we saw them back on the shelves.
The selection has been changed much over the years I know but come on guys a big box of chocs which cost £6.49 only has 6 selections and we had to look twice to confirm it was dark chocolate.
The only pleasure we got was reminiscing about the old selection.
Sorry unless the selection is changed back we will not be… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2010

The new 'Black Magic' are absolutely appalling. What a disappointment. I have bought Black Magic chocs for decades but no more. There is nothing to be said for any one of the paltry selection of 6 non-event cheapo chocolates. The chemical taste of the orange and raspberry....words fail me. I can't imagine what they are thinking. UNADULTERATED RUBBISH!… Read Full Review
