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, but Liquid cherry was gorgeous too and also the nutty one, but I loved them all though. I used to really hog them and savour them to last a long time. I am sure the chocolate has changed too, it has lost its special "dark" flavour. Joseph Rowntree would cry if he could see what has happened to his chocolates. Why do these companies do this - Nestle, listen up and bring back all the original flavours? I have told all my family never to buy them for me again......such a great shame, as they used to be so lovely. If I could rate the chocolates as nil, I would.
