Here’s Your Guide To Watching The Brit Awards Like A True Brit


The Brit Awards are happening next week (hooray!). The awards are almost like the Grammys 2.0, but instead, they honour British musical talent rather than American. The performers for this year’s awards are stellar too: Adele, Little Mix, Coldplay, James Bay, Rihanna, and more.

Since the Feb. 24 is quickly approaching, it’s time to get prepared for the event. Much has got you covered—here’s your guide to watching The Brit Awards, British style:

Snacks and Drinks

When watching a long award show, especially when you’re with friends, you need to be prepared with an arsenal of food and drinks. Since The Brit Awards are, well, British, you may want to re-think ordering that typical pepperoni pizza.

From biscuits made with crunch oats and smooth chocolate to “crisps” that taste like pickled onions, Britain has a vast selection of unique snack foods. We’ve found some yummy treats that you might want to munch on during the show:

[HobNobs, $5][Lion Bar, $3.50][Twiglets, $3.12/individual, $37.41/case of 12][Monster Munch, $1/individual, $6/case of 6][Parma Violets, $3/individual, $15/50 rolls][Nik Naks, £5.94]

In terms of drinks, snuggle up with a warm mug of tea. The British are known for drinking tea, and there are a lot more tasty flavours available than just you’re average earl grey. From chocolate flavoured to lemonade tea, there are all kinds of variations of traditional tea. We’ve found some teas that are sure to taste tea-licious:

[Pink Lemonade Tea, starting at $8][Poached Pear Tea, starting at $8][Dark Chocolate Delight Tea, starting at $9][Honeybush Vanilla Herbal Tea, starting at $7][Lavender Dreams White Tea, starting at $15][Organic Rockin’ Berry White Tea, starting at $8]

Get in the spirit for The Brit Awards by sprucing up your living room (and yourself!) with some British-themed decor and accessories. It’s not a party without the decorations, right? From blankets, to pillows, to banners, to scrunchies, get decked out with the Union Jack!
