It’s almost that time of the year where people dust off the international bunting, balloons, and novelty hats in celebration of the Eurovision Song Contest and this year is even more special because it’s happening in our own country! With that in mind, it’s time to start planning the perfect party snacks to enjoy while watching the vibrant display. Whether you’re hosting a party for friends and family or keeping it low-key, there are plenty of delicious snack ideas that will get you in the Eurovision spirit. Here are just a few delicious tips to get you started:
Nachos and Dips
Nachos are fast becoming a British snack staple, and are perfect for watching Eurovision as they’re incredibly easy to make and you can add whatever condiments and toppings you like. Serve them with a variety of dips like our Spiced Tomato & Caramelised Onion Chutney for a delicious snack that will keep you satisfied throughout the competition.
You can never go wrong with pizza, and mini pizzas are the perfect solution for snacking and cheering without dropping cheese on yourself. You can make your own mini pizzas using store-bought pizza crusts or pita bread and toppings of your choice. Some popular toppings for mini pizzas include mini pepperoni, mushrooms, and finely diced peppers. Of course, you can pick from a selection of our vegetable boxes to ensure you have enough produce leftover for the following week!
For the more discerning tastes, opting for a charcuterie board is guaranteed to turn heads. Choose from a variety of hard and soft cheeses, wholemeal crackers, olives, and fruits such as grapes and apples. You can also add some cured meats such as salami or prosciutto for a more substantial snack and some of our Pure Honey to cut through the saltiness.
On to a healthier option; fruit skewers are the perfect choice for adults and children to snack on whilst enjoying the celebrations. You can make them with a variety of fruits such as strawberries, pineapples, and grapes or if you’re feeling adventurous you can order one of your fruit boxes that comes with at least 15 portions for the small option. They’re very easy to make and are a great way to add some colour to your snack table.
Chocolate-covered strawberries are a delicious and decadent snack that isn’t just for occasions such as Valentine’s Day. They’re easy to make and can be customised with different types of chocolate such as dark, milk, or white chocolate and go perfectly with a bottle of something bubbly.
Need we say more? Cakes are a sweet and versatile dessert that you can make from scratch, or even easier, buy fresh and ready to be devoured with a cup of your favourite hot drink. Add some extra frosting and colourful sprinkles for a fun and festive snack that everyone will love.
A vegetable platter is a healthy and delicious snack idea for Eurovision. Choose a variety of vegetables such as carrots, celery, and cucumbers (again, look no further than our wide range of fruit and vegetable boxes for inspiration). Serve them with a light but hearty dip such as hummus for a tasty and nutritious snack.
There are plenty of delicious snack ideas that are perfect for Eurovision. From nachos and dips to mini cupcakes, there’s something for everyone regardless of time and budget. So, grab your snacks, sit back, and enjoy the Eurovision Song Contest!
