Black Magic...whats going on???

Can anyone tell me if you can still get the old Black Magic Chocolates? All I can find are the ones they brought out about a year ago. They are different truffles covered in dark chocolate. I have been looking for them for my Mum for months now as she loves the old ones but doesnt like the new ones! .....she cant eat them with her dentures!!

I would love to be able to get her a box as she really does love them. Im in the Sunny SE.

Thanks for your help

I'm afraid I have bad news, a similar dismay at the new change prompted me to investigate this further, and feckin nestle have only gone and replaced the old recipe for Black Magic with this praline laden crap!!

There's an online petition:

In the meantime, Thorntons do offer an alternative in their version, "Dark Classics" which are somewhat similar.

Thank you so much for that.....I now have to break the news to my Mother....

Why would they do that??? It was always a popular box of chocs why ruin them??? The new ones are horrible

I have signed the petition but dont think we will have much luck as there are only a couple of hundred signatures!!

Will check out the Thorntons one as I wil be in the big smoke next week.

Again thanks for you help.

Hurrah! Nestle have brought back (some) of the originals in their new "Classics" collection. I'm well happy because black magic are my favourite chocolates!

Anyone else happy to see this?

The Nestle rep told me last week that they were bringing back the "old boxes" didnt know they were gone TBH, so took a case off him.


So they are back anyway.

I'm sure I saw the old boxes on the shelf in Phelan's in Fair City when I was flicking through the channels.

I quite liked the new ones

That said though, I never really had the old ones all that much.

Brilliant News, I got a box of the new sweets last Christmas, so disappointing, I felt they all tasted the same.
