“My Aunt Thought She Was Being Nice”

Written on: 15/05/2016 by kentst (1 review written)

I almost had a seizure when I tasted one of these. This has to be the Chef Boyardee of candy. I remember Black Magic from when I was a child and definitely no where near this fecal bouquet. The only thing I can think of is them competing with their crappy counterpart in the states called Hershey. Tastes almost exactly like that trash. I would as one reviewer recommend go about getting Belgian chocolate because it is far superior to this stuff… Read Full Review

My thought is probably they are more concerned with stealing water from other countries than focused on the main product that made the famous in the first place.

“Absolute Rubbish Now”

Written on: 11/04/2016 by JaylonFlood (1 review written)

I used to love Black Magic but they are just so poor now I won't ever be buying again. I was bought a box for Christmas but would request any other chocolate now. I used to like the cherry ones but these were replaced (cost cutting?). Then they took them off the market and sent production to Poland. They were never the same after this. They are dry and the chocolate has no flavour. Please Nestle just stop production you're wasting your time. The selection is very limited now and they're even… Read Full Review

“Used to be so good”

Written on: 01/01/2016 by ErickPatton (1 review written)

Black magic orange cream was my favourite choc of all time. Not now. I think these chocs are a shadow of their former selves The flavours have changed. Some old favourites are missing. They really lack pazzaz. Please try harder or there will be even more boxes left on the shelves in the supermarket sales… Read Full Review

“A terrible deception ...!!”

Written on: 27/12/2015 by DodeG (1 review written)

Same name, similar box, terrible product. Like so many other reviewers, we were appalled by the contents of our "Black Magic Box". Having not had them for a number of years (we are now in Australia), I was given a box as a Christmas present and we were excited about a trip down memory lane.... The only trip this box took was into the bin. Tried all items once (to give it a fair go!), but none twice. Other than in name and appearance, these chocolates are UNRECOGNISABLE as Black Magic. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2015

I, too, was bitterly disappointed by this product. It is many years since I last bought a box of Black Magic and I shall not be doing so again. I seem remember there used to be a choice of about twelve different centres, all delicious, but now only half that amount. I found them very unimpressive and rather sweet and sickly. I don't know how they can be called "Black Magic" as they are nothing like the originals.

“Urgent Rebranding Needed”

Written on: 19/12/2015 by GregVennal (1 review written)

Nestle needs to change the name of this product from Black Magic to something like Bland Misery. As someone who remembers the original Black Magic produced in York by Rowntree Mackintosh, this pitiful selection now offered by Nestle from must be some kind of violation of trading standards to go under the same iconic name. Needless to say, I will never buy this product again. Not even the knowledge it is now manufactured at much lower cost in the Czech Republic will tempt me. I can only urge… Read Full Review

“Tastes like scented soap!”

Written on: 14/10/2015

My favourite raspberry cream tasted like scented soap, covered in a thin coat of vapid dark chocolate?? It was the first time I had bought a box for ages, and it cost £3.00 which was half price. NO WONDER IT WAS HALF PRICE!! Yuk!… Read Full Review

“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

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

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
