Cobble Creek Flexible Tie Dye Popsicle Molds/Snack Holders, Set of 4

I love how bright and colorful these silicone tubes are! You can use them to make your own Flavor-Ice-style popsicles just by filling them with liquid, capping them, and setting them in the freezer. Or, they also suggest using them as snack holders on the go. I feel like kids would love getting their snacks served in one of these tie-dye tubes.

These gray earbuds work pretty darn well! I was surprised since the packaging seems kind of simple, and I didn’t recognize the brand. They don’t have very much bass on them, but for people who aren’t too picky about sound (me, at least not if I’m on a jog or whatnot), they do just fine. I like that there’s a volume control, too.

Harmon Drying Mat and Drawer Liner

I’m actually really happy to see this item! I’ve been using sad dishcloths and towels to dry my hand-washed dishware. They do okay, but sometimes I notice water still seeping through to my countertop and more importantly, that leaves me down a dish towel that I might want to use to dry the dishes! Long story short, I’m digging this plush mat. It’s thick and absorbent and has a grippy underside that keeps it from shimmying around on my counter.

The Verdict: Another box of surprisingly useful little products! I like the housewares that pop up in this subscription—as someone who doesn’t have a super established household yet, I’m always happy to get the smart, solution-oriented products (like the drying mat) that I never would’ve thought to nab myself. The popsicle tubes were the only thing that felt a little out of place since they’re such a summery item and it’s just now getting cold, but I’m still excited to put them to good use!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can always sign up, but what you’ll get in your box is totally random!

Value Breakdown: This box cost $9.99. I couldn’t find these particular brands and products online. Rather than guess at the value, I’ll just say that the average price of these three items, given the cost of the box, would be $3.33.
