Surprise Her With A Mystery Chocolate Box

I love subscription boxes. The thrill of having no idea what is going to be in the box when you open it up is half of the fun. Well, the Mystery Chocolate Box takes that to a whole new level! Once you open the box up, there are chocolate bars just labeled A B, & C. They could be anything (but don’t worry, they include allergy information)! Now you are eating your chocolate and there is still a surprise element to it!

I had fun guessing with my husband what we were eating. We were both chomping away and looking at each other deep in thought. We agreed on all of them and then entered our guesses online. About a week after we guessed, Mystery Chocolate Box revealed the details on their website and we were very close! We knew that Bar A was peppermint bark. That was obvious even from the smell. On Bar B we were not quite sure but knew it was a sort of holiday flavor. I said gingerbread and he agreed – we were right! For Bar C, we were both more or less stumped. We guessed hot chocolate thanks to the hint in the letter that came in the box – a hot drink you might enjoy in front of the fire – but it was Hot Buttered Rum! Bar A was my favorite, while Bar C was my husband’s favorite.

This year, give the gift that keep on giving, and get your Valentine a 3 or 12 month subscription to this box – so it can feel like Valentine’s Day all year long! These boxes are fun for the whole family. I love that the guessing does not stop when you open up the box like most subscription boxes. We were checking every day to see what the flavors were, which was a huge part of the fun! Find out more about the Mystery Chocolate Box and subscribe on their website here. You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Lucky Me is Full of Fashion, Mystery, and Romance | #Giveaway #LuckyMe #BlogTour

For eighteen year old Gia Winters, having a movie star for a father, a former Playboy bunny as a mother, a Hollywood mansion, and a closet stocked with Chanel is simply another day in the life. But her world is turned upside down when her father mysteriously hires a group of bodyguards to trail the family 24/7 and threatening phone calls from a “Dr. D” start buzzing daily. When Gia scores the coveted role of Miss Golden Globe, she is forced to strike a deal with her bodyguard, Jack, who is almost as arrogant as he is attractive. Juggling Gia’s romantic failures, fashion faux pas, and celebrity obsessions, the duo investigate a series of clues with the help of a police cadet, who has a special set of skills and an even better set of dimples. But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, danger levels rise higher than her stilettos as Gia learns that the biggest secrets might be the ones buried in her own home. In a place where the hills have eyes, high school nemeses, bad hair days, raging parties, and stolen kisses, there can only be trouble for a girl who was just starting to consider herself lucky.

5 Reasons to Have Your Family Vacation at Hersheypark | #HersheyPark #HersheyPA

Recently I took my whole family to Hersheypark for a weekend. We live in Upstate New York so it is not that long a drive (about 5 hours) and we were all really excited to go! My husband grew up in New York and so he had been there with his family when he was younger but not recently. Myself and our young daughters had never been – but had heard great things. We spent our entire Saturday in the park and had more fun than we ever imagined.

New Never Before Seen Footage of The BFG In the Latest Trailer | #TheBFG #Disney

I have been reading The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) with my daughters. We read a chapter every night at bedtime – and are actually on our second time through it. My 4 year old just loves all the silly words and sounds. Both of my girls were super excited when I told them that Disney was making The BFG into a movie – and today I got to show them the trailer. They oooooo’d and ahhhhh’d at the images of the giant, and could tell they were happy to put a face to the words from the book. I was very impressed with the trailer as well – and it made me even more excited for this movie. I read The BFG more times that I can count when I was younger, so this is close to my heart. I cannot wait to head to theaters on July 1st when it comes out!

Disney Unveiled The BFG Poster – and It’s Incredible | #TheBFG #Disney

I must have read The BFG at least 50 times when I was younger. I was one of those kids that could always be found in a book. I read several books a week and reread my favorites – The BFG was one of those. I can vividly remember sitting under my covers and reading it many nights (kind of perfect, isn’t it?). When I heard that Disney was going to be making The BFG into a film, and directed by Stephen Spielberg no less, well, let’s just say I was excited. And then I was thrilled when Disney Studios sent me a copy of the book because I could start reading it with my daughters. Every night we have been reading a chapter or two since it arrived and we are nearing the end. My 4 year old has been so enthralled with it – and already asked if we could read it through a second time when we finish. I was talking with her earlier today when I got a notification for an email. I opened it up and what I saw was so perfect, so visually stunning, so amazing – Disney unveiled the poster for The BFG and all I can say is WOW. My daughter looked over my shoulder and yelled “Hey, that says The BFG! Like our book! I love that.” and when I told her that it was a movie poster the look on her face was priceless. She asked if we could go see and I told her that she can bet on the fact that we will be at the theater the day it opens.

Try The World Subscription Box

I have always wanted to travel to Europe. My husband got to see many places around the world when he was in the Navy and he keeps telling me he will take me one day. One of the places he always raves about is Venice – so imagine my surprise when I opened up my Try The World box and saw it was Venice themed! I was thrilled – and so was he!

The Try The World Venice Box was filled with delicious goodies! I immediately noticed a big tin of Mogi coffee. I love coffee – I mean, come on, I am a stay at home mom of two hyper little girls, how else would I function? I opened this up and smelled it right away. Heaven is about the only way to describe it. The flavor of this coffee was great too – my husband and I both enjoyed it.


The next thing I noticed in my box was the Pastificio Dei Campi pasta. We love pasta in our house. In fact, Olive Garden is probably our favorite restaurant and I always get pasta meals. This pasta is handmade and to die for. I like my pasta al dente and this package was fantastic. We cooked it with the Urbani Tartufi red pesto and truffles sauce that was also included in the box. What a great meal!

After a delicious dinner it was time for dessert. Lucky for us that was included in the box as well! There were little lemon candies called Leone which my young daughters have fallen in love with. They ate them up very quickly and I only got to have two! The Venice Try The World Box also included a large chocolate bar, Perugina. That was yummy! It has a hint of hazelnut and I could have eaten the whole thing by myself, but was nice and shared with my husband. The last bit of dessert included in the Venice Box was two Venchi nougat chocolate sticks. I had one and my husband had the other. We both loved the flavors – and it went great with our Mogi coffee!

The Venice Try The World Box also contained something that was not on the card – a mystery treat! It was some amazing Melata di Bosco honey! We love honey in our house. I enjoy it on bread and even in my tea as a natural sweetener. I think this subscription box is really unique and fun. A lot of us will not be able to travel everywhere in the world in our lifetime – OK, most of us will not be able to – and Try The World is a fun way that we can still sample foods from those places.

If you buy a subscription to Try The World here, you will receive a Venice Box plus a FREE Paris Box as a bonus box!

Would you like a 30% discount code for Try The World? Well you can get it off your first box using the code MAMASMITHTRAVELS.  Please note that this code only applies to subscriptions and not to gifts.

Please note that the above offers do not combine.
