Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome August 2018 Box Review
Each month, one subscriber wins a premium item instead of their typical box. This month, a TV is up for grabs!
Royal Sport Limited Tumbler
I also review the mini version of this subscription, and I got this same tumbler in that box in June. I also got packets of their whey protein in June’s regular sized box. It’s not a bad tumbler, and I like the dark purple color. I wish the design was a little more fun, rather than just a big brand name, but it’s certainly practical.
Metal Bacon Sign
While I know my bacon-loving partner would LOVE to hang something like this in our kitchen, my vegetarian-leaning tastes are going to keep him from achieving this particular dream. This metal poster is definitely quirky. I’ll have to hang onto it as a gag gift for another meat-eater I know.
This is a curious little item. It’s essentially a lantern (the base has a battery pack and lights inside of it) with a squishy plastic body that doubles as a canteen. It’s a little odd, but I’m willing to give it a try the next time I head to an outdoor concert or outdoor evening get-together.
11 Piece Star Wars Wall Decal Set
If you don’t love Star Wars, this might not be the subscription box for you! I’ve gotten SO much Star Wars merch, from home products to kids books, via this subscription. I don’t dislike the franchise, but it’s definitely more than I bargained for. These wall decals are made to be repositioned and reused as you like. They’re also washable and pretty sturdy. I’m keeping them in my “potential future gifts” pile for kiddos in my family. It’ll be a solid gift for someone around the holidays. But for me? Eh, not my fave.
Mainstays 24-Cup Cupcake Carrier
I recognized this carrier as a Walmart brand, but the site no longer lists it. I’ve never had one of these cupcake caddies, but I love the idea of bringing tidy treats to parties, etc. (I’ve been getting way into baking lately.) I can use the metal tin to cook the cupcakes in and then transfer it right into the caddy, or I can do two batches and use the red tray as a second tier. The part I like best is that you can flip the whole thing over and use the clear plastic lid as a stand to sit the cupcake tin inside. Easy displaying, easing serving!
The Verdict: This month’s box had some real hits and some eh… so-so items for me. I really like the cupcake tin and I’m happy to add the tumbler to my collection. But everything else felt like a miss, unfortunately. I’ll probably be able to repurpose some items into gifts, but I was a little underwhelmed, personally.
