“Black Magic disappointment”

Written on: 13/07/2014

Not had these in a while and wouldn't have recognised them but for the box! Only six varieties, all taste the same, excess packaging to make the box look bigger, such a disappointment. Won't bother again and won't be recommending them either. Shame on Nestle for the dumbing down… Read Full Review

“Poor imitation”

Written on: 24/05/2014 by Ivanflint (1 review written)

I was brought up on Black Magic Chocolates in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and what a delight they were, with their standard range of Coffee Cream, Nougat, Montellemar, Liquid Cherry, Orange Cream, Whole hazelnut, Nut Cluster etc, "en-robed" in the loveliest dark chocolate. Their shapes are indelibly imprinted on my memory, and I still have on or two of their boxes with tassels and menu on the inside lid , and even one tin in the same livery, all now nurturing correspondence from yesteryear… Read Full Review

“Bring back the real Black Magic”

Written on: 25/04/2014 by Frankh46 (1 review written)

I was thrilled when my son bought me a box until I realised how poor they were. Where are the old favourites? Butterscotch, hard caramel, nougat are all essential. Black magic should be renamed Black Disappointment… Read Full Review

“Disgusting,cheap tasting ,teeth hurting ,sickly rubbish!”

Written on: 31/03/2014 by LittleOwl1 (1 review written)

Why are these still called Black Magic when they are completely different from the originals. No coffee creams, no butterscotch, no turkish delight, no hard chocolate caramel, no marzipan, no cherry, to name but a few. All the best ones have completely dissapeared from the box. The fillings all seem to be the same consistency and very sickly. Never buying them again… Read Full Review

“Does Nestlé read these do you suppose?”

Written on: 25/02/2014 by Londinium (1 review written)

I had Googled to find out where I could buy a box of Black Magic and then read the Reviews. I looked further and this from YorkPress.co.uk of 23 Dec. 2013 "A Nestlé spokesman said that since the takeover, York had remained a global centre for confectionery and Nestlé remained committed to the city. He said the business had invested more than £200 million since 1988, making York’s site one of the world’s largest and most successful confectionery factories." Obviously this meant Nestlé… Read Full Review

Not any more. The dark chocolate that gave them the "black" has gone and there is no "magic" in any of the fillings. A good product ruined… Read Full Review

“Disappointing”

Written on: 04/01/2014

My sister and I looked forward to opening a box of black magic, remembering all the yummy centres we used to enjoy. What a disappointment! Only six different centres. What happened to montellimar, Turkish delight, whole cherry, butterscotch, coffee cream, whole almond, hazelnut cluster, marzipan.....who knows the secret of the black magic box? Obviously not Nestle!… Read Full Review

I agree with you about Black Magic, I like hard centre chocolates, not the squashy ones! I have just found Fortnum and Masons 'hard and nutty' chocolates - a bit pricey, but lovely!!

“Another poor quality product”

Written on: 29/12/2013

All products nowadays are going up in price, down in size and down in quality, we are being conned, Black Magic Chocolates are at the top of the list. We have recently lost our son (during Xmas 2011), Christmas is a very low time for us, so as a special treat I bought my wife a large box of Black Magic, they were always her favourite and she hadn't had any for years, when she opened them she said that there was something wrong they weren't the dark chocolate she expected, she then tasted one… Read Full Review

“Rip Off”

Written on: 26/12/2013 by JoJaJo (1 review written)

Bought these chocolates for a Christmas present for my wife. I used to buy her a box every year but have not done so for the last 2 years. Absolutely disgusted to find that there was a selection of 6 only, of which 2 were nut based. The others are cheap and boring fillings. These should not be sold under the Black Magic name as they are nothing like the chocolate selection they used to be. The name should be qualified to show that there is a limited selection. Although the chocolate selection… Read Full Review

“Black Magic? Sad disappointment”

Written on: 06/09/2013

Every year since I was quite young, my Dad would buy me a box on my birthday and for Christmas as an extra treat, I had a routine in which order I ate them in and saved the liquid cherry until last. About 1993, he again bought me a box as an extra treat and off I went to open them. OMG, the lemon centred one, the butterscotch, the liquid cherry had all gone and what was left was a very poor substitue for my one time favourite chocolates. I wrote to Nestle and stated my disappointment and asked… Read Full Review

Sarlouise's Comment

Written on: 12/12/2013

I had not tried Black Magic for years (I am 63) and I have just been given a box. These chocolates bear no resemblance to the lovely chocs of the past. The current box is full of dreadful sweets called Black Magic but they are nothing to do with the real Black Magic Chocolates. Could someone bring these back please please!

“BlackMagic ruined”

Written on: 24/05/2013 by cocoafree (1 review written)

Black Magic used to be a favourite with me. I was recently thrilled to receive a box as a present. What a disappointment: hardly any varieties, all squishy centres, cheap greasy chocolate, nasty-tasting centres grossly overloaded with sugar. They were a travesty of the old Black Magic and Nestle should not be allowed to use this name for this unpleasant and overpriced product. Never again!… Read Full Review

“None in Australia”

Written on: 29/04/2013 by Pattifran (1 review written)

I was wondering how come Black Magic is no longer available in Australia. On reading all these comments I'm rather glad I can't get them any more. Why do these companies have to change beautiful things just to make more money which they won't because nobody will buy them particularly at $33 per box???!!!! from Trish Franklin 1/59 Milton Ave., Paradise Point Qld 4216… Read Full Review

What has happened to the Black Magic chocolates I used to know - (I remember them coming in a proper box with a real red ribbon) - the chocolate is terrible and the fillings - where are all the nutty and hard centres?
