I got this annual subscription as a gift and I have made use of every single item in this box. Even the mystery item, I liked that it correlates with the recipe in the travel portal. I don't want to spoil the "mystery item," but you definitely want to scan your QR code and access the travel portal, it makes the whole experience even better. I wasn't sure what to expect but I am happy with the box so far. I might try other boxes on here.
