Active Earbuds by iWorks – Value $15.29

I can never have enough earbuds! We go through them at my house! These are really cool because they fit over your ear and are waterproof, so you can listen to your jams while doing most kinds of activity. Fun!



Antimicrobial Scissors – Value $7.49

These scissors are good and sharp, and they supposedly have an antimicrobial feature in the handles. I am dubious about how effective that might be, but I am totally psyched to have a science fair project ready for my kids when the time comes!



Prep N’ Pop Vegetable Helper – Value $5.49

Wow, I love kitchen gadgets as much as the next person, but this one seems kinda “out there.” You use it to hold veggies in place while you’re peeling and chopping them, but I’m not sure what advantages it has over my hand or a fork. It can apparently also be used to deal with hot items in the oven, and I think it might be more useful in that regard.

Verdict: This month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome was pretty good! I was really happy to get some new earbuds and a nice sharp pair of scissors. The value of everything totals $28.27, which is great for a $10 box!

What do you think of the Mini Mystery Box of Awesome? What did you get?

  1. I thought we were allowed to express our thoughts on boxes here,so people can read them,and make their own decision.That’s why I’ve been here for three years.I sometimes can get cynical and negative about a particular box…But I feel it helps others to make their choices…It helps me.

  2. I swapped my earbuds away because I have too many earbuds, and I don’t have a use for the chopping assistant. However, I was JUST about to buy a new pair of fabric scissors, so the $10 spent was worth the scissors for me!

  3. I got the scissors ( I can never have too many scissors), a kikkerland box that a strong cardboard with a magnetic closure and has a decorative wood print on it( looks fairly nice and I’m using it to keep my mail organized), and a herb and shear set ( this is the nicest thing in the box but I’m not sure if I have use for it since I usually use dried herbs maybe I’ll start using fresh and my quality of life will improve from delicious fresh herbs?) . Nothing I need terribly but will use the stuff. I’m satisfied. I may still cancel soon just because I don’t really need this stuff but it’s still nice to get a little surprise.

  4. This is one of the lamest subscription boxes I’ve ever seen. I would be incredibly surprised if they stayed in business.

    • Jammin Butter is a wholesale company that buys old lots and odd lots and random junk and resells. These boxes are just gravy for them, used to drive traffic to their main online store. This is not the meat of their business but a sales tactic, just like Peaches and Petals is for them. They are not going any where.

    • I made a list of what subs to keep in 2017. At $10 a month this one made the cut. I get more than my $10 out it every month. I really enjoy it.

      • And that is what matters. I don’t why people always put other people down in the comments on the blog. Saying something is not to your taste is one thing but some of the comments on the blog can just be insulting. This isn’t my taste but I enjoy the reviews and the comments from people on the blog who enjoy it.

        • Your comment is the only one that is at all personal in this thread.

        • Chill out! nelliebelle1197 The only person putting a person down is you, all the person said is that they would be surprised if the business doesn’t shut down they didn’t say anything bad about the reviewer taste in products.

          • When you call a box lame you are insulting everyone who likes it, including the reviewer, who obviously totally enjoyed it. So chill out yourself.
