This was the info letter that came in the package. I am so glad they put info about the LED lights at the top because I had no idea what they were (see below). This month, five people received a Miracle-Gro AeroGarden in their package! I’m bummed I was not one of them! Next month at least 25 people will receive an echo dot in the mini box. That’s so cool!


This coupon code was also included, which is good for 20% off at the parent site,


Seriously! They really want you to know about the 20% discount!


Microwave Omelette Maker – Value $3.99

Do people actually make omelettes this way? Does it work? We don’t really use our microwave very often, so we will probably find a new home for this.


Kikkerland Kiss Silicone Drink Markers – Value $3.99

How cute! For some reason, I always think of wine glasses when I think of drink markers, and so I shove all my drink markers in a drawer and never use them. These, however, would work just as well on solo cups. I just have to remember to use them!


Wireless 9 Foot Waterproof Micro LED String Lights with Timer in Warm White – Value $8.99

As I said, I’m so glad they mentioned what this was on the info letter, because I was completely confused! It didn’t come with any packaging or anything! Now that I know, though, this is pretty cool, and we will use these lights during the holiday season. Here’s how they’re shown being used on their website:




Surge Snap-On Fronts – Value $9.75

The best thing about these sunglasses is that the packaging states that it’s four looks in one, but one of those looks would be camouflage with a big hole in the front (versus snapping on the camouflage front and having no hole). I love the crazy stuff MBoA sends! Too funny! The kids will have fun with these.

Verdict: This month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome was pretty good! I don’t think we will use the omelet maker, but we will most likely use everything else. The value of everything totals about $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 got the omelet maker, drink markers and an LED wrap around light. I thought we were supposed to get 4 items. I did however get a $50 off your first two boxes of Hello Fresh. Which I don’t consider an item and I won’t even use it. Looks like it would be $25 off each week so it would still run me $90 or so. I suppose this was worth $9.99 however I won’t buy again.

  2. Instead of the drink markers, I got a Charlie Brown Christmas Book and Tree Kit, everything else was the same for me.

  3. I got the same box except no stickers??? Booo!!

  4. I got Foster Grant sunglasses and a Mini Office VooDoo Kit instead of the kiddie glasses and the kiss markers.

  5. We use drink markers all the time. With 4 kids (6 people total) in the house, the rule is use only one drinking glass per day. Otherwise I’d be doing dishes or running the dishwasher twice a day. I had purchased some mini muscle men (with different names printed across their bottoms-Speedos!) and the kids went nuts for them and use them exclusively now. But I want the lips for me!

  6. I received my mini mystery bag yesterday.Best thing in the bag were the led lights($26 ARV )..I also got kiddie sunglasses($14.00)..microwave omelet maker(no instructions included..$3.99)..a peanuts movie toy(.$6 ARV)..
    $9.99 for bag..estimated value of the bag is $51

    • Not yesterday but in late October

  7. I have that exact omelet maker. I use one side for dip ( easy to store and heat the dip) and the other side for chips! I never tried to make an omlet it in, lol.

    • That’s a good idea. I don’t think I’ll actually use it as an omelette maker either…

    • Awesome idea!! I’ve had that same omelet maker for about a year now, I got it in last year’s big box of mystery and I’ve never used it and I don’t even really eat omelettes. But I do LOVE my chips and dip and that’s a brilliant idea Bonnie! Thanks for sharing
