Black Magic was a firm favourite of my father's. It became the only chocolate box I enjoyed. My five children loved them. Last year I couldn't find any apart from plain chocolates with no soft centres- dissappointing! This year great found my favourite box. Only they weren't. No strong dark chocolate smell when I opened the box, they didn't look dark, they certainly didn't taste like they used to, no coffee no cherry. How very dissappointing. What has happened?… Read Full Review

Generally, never a great chocolate eater except for Black Magic - my special treat - loved them. When they disappeared off the scene I was so disappointed. Birthdays, Monther's Days, Christmases just never seemed the same for me. Today my son came home with a BOX OF BLACK MAGIC Classic Favourites, thinking that Nestle may be back on track with real Black Magic after all those silly alternarives we have been presented with over the past few years. What a let down. Cheap,tacky,rubbish that is all… Read Full Review

Have not been able to buy Black Majic for a couple of years. My husband used to get them for me for Christmas. I have already sent several emails to Nestles to find out why they were no longer available. However, after reading the comments on this website, they must have stopped production and changed the chocolates. From the comments it sounds that they should have left things alone… Read Full Review

Bought a box yesterday after waiting for the old chocolates which were always my favorites to come back I was so dissapointed the centres were not the soft runny ones of old just not the same the centres were like the ones you can buy anywhere. Blackmagic were always special had so many different flavours some with half a cherry etc. or nuts but all the soft ones were tasty & had soft runny centres. Sorry these are not the orginals & wont be buying them again… Read Full Review

There should be a rating of ZERO stars for the "changed" Black Magic versions! What happened to the old rule "If it 'aint broke, don't fix it"?
Like many others, I have sent several emails to Nestle over the past year or more, telling them that I thought changing the original B.M. chocs was a serious mistake and that the "Classic Favourites" did not go anywhere near far enough towards putting anything right. I even directed Nestle to websites such as this one and included newspaper articles… Read Full Review

It doesn't seem worth me writing a review properly for this seeing as everyone else has hit the nail right on the head.
1. the wierd square shaped ones they brought out were just a mockery!!
2. what the hell happened to coffee creams, you just can't but chocs now with those in!!!
3. who do nestle think they are kidding with the new classic box they brought out. nothing like the original ones!!!! i was sooooo looking forward to them and it was a huge disappointment!!!!!!!

Black Magic Choclolates...I'd just like to say how sad that Nestle actually believed the bland, boring mediocre truffle square shaped c*ap would be welcomed as an acceptable replacement to the old attractive varied shapes and delicious flavours...When I got them in xmas a year or so ago their appearance and taste bored me to tears and I was so dissapointed.
Sure enough no one liked them and they flopped hard and its almost laughable since they were really the most tragic excuse for an new… Read Full Review

The chocolate is horrible, not dark enough and too sweet and too thick. The centres are nothing like the original. Has anybody at Nestle ever tried the original Black Magic? There used to be a good choice of centres, not just 6.
The new version is like a slightly darker Dairy Box and not worth the money. I won't buy them again and I shall tell people not to get them for me… Read Full Review

Have they sacked everybody in the past few years and lost the original recipe ???? Having been told that Nestle were to re-introduce the classic Black Magic assortment, I decided to give them another chance after suffering great disappointment when I found out they had introduceded an all new format previously. Sin of Sins !!!! These re-branded "classic" chocolates are nothing like the original selection ...who are they trying to kid ? They taste weird, they look weird, they even smell a bit… Read Full Review

I have never been a huge chocolate eater but I was born and bred only a couple of hundred metres from Rowntree's factory in York. Black Magic was always my favourite selection and a couple of days ago, I decided to treat myself and bought a box.
Horror of horrors! They didn't even LOOK like Black Magic. Where were my 3 favourites? Coffee cream, Turkish Delight and Liquid Cherry?
I'm sorry Nestle but from now on, It's Thornton's and the occasional Cadbury's Bournville for me… Read Full Review

I was very excited recently to receive a letter from Nestle saying the old black magics were back, I sent my husband straight out to buy some. How disappointing!! they are a sad shadow of their former selves. The chocolate doesnt taste the same, they dont smell the same. The centres are just so bad compared with the absolute delight they used to be. Why did they have to do this? They clearly got it wrong by introducing those horrible square things and now are trying to put it right by fobbing… Read Full Review

The square blocks were a total disaster & ended in the bin & never bought another box of them after years of being the only chocolates I ever bought.
Anyhow after being notified by Nestle recently of their new Classic selection I thought worth a try--------what a suck in, slight improvement on them square blocks (that wouldn't take much doing), so I'm back to an ex-Black Magic customer again.
Why couldn't they leave well alone to start with---there was nothing to beat the black chocolate… Read Full Review

What happened to the old Black Magic chocolates? Bring them back. They have always been my favourites, especially the orange,strawberry and coffee creams. They are all hard centres now and difficult to work out what flavour they are.I never guessed that new packaging would mean new chocolates, what a disappointment.
Everyone knew if they were buying me chocolates, only Black Magic would do, but not anymore, I have told family and friends not to buy them.
Come on Nestles, what are you… Read Full Review
