Mini Mystery Box of Awesome January 2019 Review
Each month we get an advertisement card that includes a new contest for a pretty cool gift. This month, it’s a FitBit! The back of the card also introduces a new way to snack through a monthly subscription; we started reviewing those last month, go check them out here!
We also get a monthly edition of The Regular which has all kinds of puzzles: word search, word fill in’s and connect the dots. This month’s theme is Happy New Year.
Copper Sole Socks, Size Large – Retail Value $16.93
The first item I received in this month’s box was a single pair of copper sole socks. As soon as I removed them from their box, I immediately noticed how thick they were. When my husband tried them on, he thought they were on inside out because of the way they felt, but he did say they were comfortable (without shoes). The size seemed true and he appeared as happy as a guy could be receiving socks. As far as the value, I am not going to lie, but $16.93 for a single pair of socks is insane, but these claim to kill athlete’s foot and foot fungus. I don’t know how true that is as I have never been unlucky enough to experience either and cannot test the theory. If they do do that, though, maybe the value is worth it.
Super Mario Pins – Retail Value $7.58
Man! I wish I got these at this time last year when I threw my son a gaming party. We are big Mario lovers here and these pins were an exciting item to receive, though hard to photograph. I got 6 pins featuring Yoshi, Mario, Donkey Kong, Peach, Luigi, and Toad. When you tilt the pin a certain way, the characters reflect but turn it another way and their symbol appear. These are pretty cool.
Meme Magnets – Retail Value $6.99
This was a pretty cool item too! Perfect for messages on the fridge and way more likable than the old-timey colorful letter magnets. It came with 166 magnets; plenty of letters to create meme’s or messages.
Ghirardelli Candy in Peppermint Bark – Buy a 7.9 Ounce Box for $7.19
Milk Chocolate Caramel – Buy a 5.9 Ounce Box for $6.99
This was a nice inclusion that felt like a bonus item in this month’s box. Each box came with two individually wrapped candies.
The peppermint bark was different; definitely minty with some chocolate – not a candy I would seek again, though.
The milk chocolate caramel was a bit better than the peppermint bark. I liked that the caramel wasn’t overpowering as it can be quickly. This is also not a candy I would just grab, either. My taste in chocolate is simple – milk or dark with almonds is always a favorite.
Verdict: I think this was the best Mini Mystery Box of Awesome I have ever received; the items were completely practical and fun for the whole family. My husband was pleased with the socks, the kids loved the Super Mario Pins and everyone could not wait to start making memes. I also liked the inclusion of a sweet snack and wonder if that will continue.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Can you still get this box if you subscribe today? Each box is completely random. You may get some of the same items or you may get totally different ones!
Value Breakdown: The combined total of all the items this month was $31.51 (not counting the candy), which is pretty good. This box costs $9.99 which means you are paying approximately $1.99 an item.
