“Disgusting! Shame on you, Nestlé”

Written on: 09/06/2022 by xfBreen315 (1 review written)

If, like me, you remember Black Magic chocolates fondly, do NOT try these! In no way do they resemble the Black Magic of old. The Chocolates themselves are pathetically small, the centres more like cream eggs; mega-sugary and almost totally devoid of flavour. If you want to offend a loved one, you might consider buying them a box of these! If you're looking forward to trying them yourself, don't do it! You have been warned!… Read Full Review

“Sunbury girl”

Written on: 18/04/2022 by LeonardWoodard (1 review written)

As a child in the 1960's I loved these. A tiny box would be given as a treat. The centres, montelimar, butterscotch, coffee, cherry, and marzipan to name but a few! Now they are small, centres boring, and to put it bluntly, the cheapest to produce. I've received some as a gift. Annoyed people don't know how standards have dropped, and buy them. Fit only for the bin. Such a shame. Someone needs to reproduce the old centres, a throw back to when things were done properly,worth buying, and really… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/12/2019 by ruSilva31 (1 review written)

As has been written by many others, Black Magic 'used' to be a decent assorted chocolate box. It has now turned into a tasteless box of nothing. Bland flavours, smaller chocolates and less of them. Avoid at all costs!… Read Full Review

“Where has the “magic” gone?!!!”

Written on: 25/01/2018 by Trudy346poppy (1 review written)

I love dark chocolate and was pleased when I was given a box at Christmas, but that feeling didn’t last long! I used to love Black Magic when I was younger but these chocolates aren’t how I remember them. Nestle seem to have ruined them just like they have ruined other chocolates that they have got their hands on! The chocolate has no flavour and the fillings taste horrid. What a shame! I shan’t be buying them in the future that’s for sure. It says on the box “discover the… Read Full Review

“They Were Great 30 Years Ago”

Written on: 02/01/2017 by bpKelly226 (1 review written)

After tasting these chocolates, my husband and I have decided to never purchase these again. All we taste was the flavor of coconut. It was then that I read the ingredients. What do I see, but the words palm oil, palm oil, palm oil. Sadly many companies are replacing good quality ingredients with the cheap production of palm oil. To all the people that buy chocolate as gifts, remember to check the ingredients. Make sure the words "palm oil" does not appear… Read Full Review

“Shaddow of Black Magic”

Written on: 26/12/2016 by RountreeFan (1 review written)

I bought a Black Magic box and was shocked by the greasy inferior tasting chocolate. The lack of the Rountrees tradional montelimar and cherry cup is a great disappointment.The centres are miserable quality lacking in quality flavours; lacking in texture.Nestles ruined a great product of York yet again. Even the chocolate tablet is awful.The size of each chocolate is greatly reduced since the Rountrees days. Penny pinching miserable… Read Full Review

“Nwstles Have Destroyed a Good Chocolate”

Written on: 31/08/2016 by Graysony441 (1 review written)

Why have you ruined the once-excellent Black Magic chocolates? All the wonderful flavours, i.e. Orange Cream and the Cherry are now shadows of their former selves. Is it a cost-saving operation, sending the chocolates to Third World manufacturers, or is just ignorance on the part of Nestles management. The once great chocolate is now just inferior sickly low-grade confectionary. Sorry, but Nestles destroys the quality of all the chocolate it takes over. Stick to what you know best - the… Read Full Review

“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

Nettejames's Response to DodeG's 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

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
