Real dissapointment, 1 Dec. 2013
I bought this stuff for my daughter's chocolate themed 10th Birthday Party. I thought it would be good to create something in chocolate without too much hassle alongside all the other chocolatey stuff going on.
The Magic Choc was such a terrible disappoinment....I thought the pack for 10 models would be shared generously between 4 girls, but it really didn't go very far. The chocolate comes in small discs which become mouldable in your hands once warmed and kneaded. However the discs were dry and brittle and very difficult to get going.....limiting shapes and forms and didn't look anything like on the box. There are 3 types of chocolate, milk, white and plain so you can create patterns and features on the models, but the stuff really didn't adhere well at all and become frustrating and disappointing for the girls using it - who were old enough to know how to manage moulding clay etc. When eventually some of the discs got warmed up they were too greasy to manage - fat come oozing out. The box suggests that only finger tips should be used to reduce stickiness, but that is impossible when you need to knead the material to get anything that can be formed.
Finally the taste and smell is really off putting. The smell of the stuff is like the awful chocolate scented erasers and pens you get, and then if you think you would like to eat it after all that kneading and forming the taste really isn't chocolatey at all - but really synthetic. Its says made with 100% Belgian Chocolate - but I'm not convinced how.
The whole lot went into the bin...a real waste of money...the only value what so ever was the lessons learnt by the kids regarding the amount of fat and grease that's in chocolate and he crass laughter when the stuff was melded into sausage shapes - and then looked like a very realistic model of something that should be flushed down the toilet!
I really wouldn't bother wasting your cash on this but get some chocolate flavoured fondant to do the job instead!
