We don’t know what to say here. We all feel pretty helpless. The people at UNICEF seem to know how to help the kids in Ukraine, Gaza & Armenia (amongst, sadly, many other countries). Donate to UNICEF by clicking through this big box here. We’ll be updating our games this year but not much else, sorry.

Party Tips

Party food: Best European snacks

Eurovision 2023 is nearly here! Every party needs good snacks - here's a selection you can buy online.

Crisps are just the best, right? And biscuits, they’re pretty mega too. Once the performances are over and the televotes are in, you may need a little pick-me-up to see you through the half hour or so of all the votes being read out. Whether it be nerves, a dip in energy or one too many Martini Russos, some salty and sweet snacks should see you right!

Presenting the Mission Eurovision ‘list of online shops with great selections of crisps, nuts, chocolates and baked goods’! 

Dr Gerard Rurki Polish snacks

Why is it that the best crisps and crispy snacks are found when we’re on our holidays? Paprika flavours and pizza flavours on crunchy, salty, munchy treats are stuff of joy and legend. There’s plenty to choose from in this online store. Some of our favourites are:
