PRIZE DRAWING: Mystery Box Giveaway (Summer 2023 Edition)


Whenever we get swag from companies that accompany the products they send, we stick them in a large USPS Priority Mail box. When that box gets full, we have one of these giveaways.

Also, just throwing this out there — there’s absolutely no reason why this giveaway is starting today, August 9th. No reason at all.


To enter this prize drawing for this Mystery Box of accumulated swag, leave a comment with THIS post, and that comment MUST include the word “tofu.”

Remember to fill out the email field because we’ll be emailing the randomly selected winner for their mailing addresses.

We will stop accepting entries on Sunday, August 13, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one comment is allowed per person, and it’s only open to U.S. residents.


If you post a comment and it doesn’t show up, it ended up in our comment spam or trash folder for some strange reason. There’s no need to attempt to post another comment because I’ll be pulling those out of the comment spam vortex regularly.

Also, do not leave your comment using the blue REPLY button at the bottom of other comments. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and leave your comment in the section above the blue POST COMMENT button. I know. Lots of scrolling. But it’ll totally be worth it if you win this Mystery Box.

Good luck!


The Impulsive Buy won’t use your email address to send you emails regarding anything about Grade A unnatural sweeteners or use your mailing address to send you what appears to be an empty envelope, but is not. Bribes will not be accepted. The Impulsive Buy will not be responsible for lost mail, damaged mail, or some of the contents of this mystery box being completely useless.
