“Awful”

Written on: 21/06/2015 by Olson31 (1 review written)

Tasteless . Better buying a cheap import and save your money. Always bought black magic for gifts in the past knowing it was a good quality product to give. Would be ashamed to give the chocs that are called black magic to anyone now. Bring back the old selection and quality of chocolate… Read Full Review

“When we were courting, 50 years ago, my (now) husband...”

Written on: 06/03/2015 by YuremWalker (1 review written)

When we were courting, 50 years ago, my (now) husband would always buy me a box of Black Magic Chocolates. For our 47th Anniversary I bought him a box of Black magic Chocolates and instead of bringing back wonderful memories, we were terribly disappointed ! What a let down on our special occasion ! They are not the same and where are the Coffee creams !… Read Full Review

“Not the Black Magic we know and love”

Written on: 17/12/2014 by 303Lucas (1 review written)

As a child I'd always buy a box of Black Magic for my Mum's Christmas present with my pocket money. We lived on our own, and after the amazing Christmas dinner she would always make us we would sit together to watch the Christmas TV and fill up any remaining space in our bellies with a few of these chocolates. Her absolute favourite was the Montelimar - a nougat covered in chocolate. These days I don't waste my money on the new version of Black Magic. It's so bad. I can now afford to splash out… Read Full Review

I agree completely; the original box was full of delightful centres that no-one else did. The chocolate assortment now is so humdrum we don't buy them anymore.

“new chocolates”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by betty67 (1 review written)

think your new chocolates are brilliant, I really enjoyed the new flavours, I have had problems with them in the past but would highly recommend them now, I am very impressed and will go back to purchasing them again. This box was bought as a gift and I was a wee bit worried after the experiences I have had in the past, again I would highly recommend these new chocolates to my family and friends and I will go back to buying them in the very foreseeable future… Read Full Review

“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

In September 2006, it was announced that the manufacture of Black Magic was moving to the Czech Republic.
So is this why all the centres have changed?
These chocolates used to be a real treat as no-one else did the same centres.
Now they're boring! Won't be buying or recommending or requesting! UGH!! Shame on you!!!

“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

Written on: 24/12/2014

I agree and they should no longer be called Black Magic! The Magic has gone!
In September 2006, it was announced that the manufacture of Black Magic was relocating to the Czech Republic with the takeover by Nestle.
Is this why the centres have all changed and the chocolate is ghastly?

“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

“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
