What Our Happy Customers Say

We love it when a customer is happy and below is a selection of comments from happy chilli-heads who have taken the time to give us some feedback!


“Hi everyone at Mr Vikkis,

Just wanted to say how wonderfully delicious your products are! I first discovered you at the food and drink fayre in York in 2011, where I first tried the amazing Banana Habanero, what a product! Everyone that tries it says ‘wow’ – my fifteen year old daughter loves it too. I now have to hide it when my brother-in-law comes round (will have to buy him some for his birthday!) My darling wife bought me an extra jar of Banana Habanero, the Indian Naga Marmalade – fab on toast, Hot Lime Pickle – surely the finest I’ve tried not oily, salty or bitter as so many others are just fresh and full of flavour, and a bottle of Hot Stuff Scotch Bonnet and Mango – great with any grilled meat. Suffice to say your range is superb, they don’t feel like an indulgence but something that tastes great and is good for you!!”


“I have just put in another bumper order to keep our Mr Vikkis habit going!! Please bring back the Coriander Sauce, alongside Chilli Jam it is our household fave!! The RSJ is yummy, but Coriander was even better!!!!”
– Hannah


“About 6 months ago we stopped at Tebay services either north bound or south, not sure which, and bought some Coriander Sauce / Chutney / Pickle not sure which and its lovely and I use it on most savoury meals. Thank you!”
– Helen


“We are Australians working here in the UK for 2011 and whilst on holiday in Keswick bought 3 jars of Tomato and Nigella Chutney and 3 jars of Mary’s Westmorland Chutney… needless to say they went off like a Hot Balloon! Thank you. Best Wishes, Peter (and family).”
– Peter


“Hi there, I would like to order some of your wonderful King Naga pickle, I normally purchase it from you via the Chilli Fiesta at West Dean but you had sold out by the time I got there this year! Thank you”
– Mark


“Hi I love your product, it really is fantastic. I live in Perth, nearest stockist Lupe Pinto. I have a delicatessen, Provender Brown, very close. I have taken them a few jars and they love it. I used some Hot Lemon Pickle in a homemade Chicken Pathia, fantastic.”
– David, Perth


“Dear Mr Vikkis, I happened to be in one of the shops that I visit regularly in Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, and I tasted a number of your products which they sold there. I bought a jar of your King Naga which was quite exquisite and I have since visited your website which reinforced my view of your extremely well crafted products. It is so good to see the effort and interest that you clearly make result in such superb products. I just wanted to express my support for such high quality stuff – more power (not to say Scovill) to your elbow. Best wishes (from a self-confessed Foodie) Rob Barrett”
– Rob


“Hi There, Just returned from York Food and drink Festival, bought your Hot Coriander sauce 1st, WOW, got addicted and then got Hot Lemon Harissa, King Naga and Hot Mango Chutney the next time we were in the festival. Beautiful, King Naga really warms the cockles!!! Will definitely be buying more! Do you have a catalogue or similar so I can show other people your products? Mr Simon Hunter. P.S If I am ever in the Lake District I will be looking you up!!”

I’ve gotten Naga but I prefer something spicier. If you have a store in Chicago that carries King Naga please forward me the information. Thank you!”
Farooq Ahmed, Chicago


“Hi. I love your King Naga pickle. I bought it at a flower show. I live in Manchester. Could you tell me where is your nearest stockist?”

– Mark Tiller


“Hi there. Just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic King Naga paste. Wow!!!!! Tasted it at the Chilli Fiesta last weekend and used it this week in earnest and it is simply amazing. The flavour is fantastic and really highlights the lovely taste of the Naga Chilli. Gonna order some more now as I don’t think it will last long at this rate. Regards”

“Thought it would be a good thing to let you know how good HHH is! I am sure you know but I cannot stop eating it, on everything! I have done all the supermarket apparently “hot” sauces and never been satisfied until I found HHH when on holiday in the Lakes. 10/10 and look forward to sampling your other products when you dispatch my order! Hope you get a mainstream stockist!”
– Mark Ledsom


“We were just in England visiting my brother and his family and they gave my husband a jar of your King Naga. My husband loves hot sauces and has tried MANY different ones. He absolutely loved the King Naga and says its the best he’s tasted. My question for you is whether or not you ship to Canada? Thanks for your help.”
– Ruth Benn


“Found your stall by luck at the Royal Highland Show at Edinburgh. Purchased 3 products and tried later at a family BBQ. Think we are hooked! Daughter’s mouth still on fire! However bit like coals to Newcastle as her family live in the Lake District. Already made www site a favourite. Regards”
– Martin Nicholls


“Hi, I just wanted to say that I bought a bottle of Max’s Ketchup on a recent visit to Keswick and husband has gone absolutely mad for it, hence my order for 3 bottles of it today. He’s extremely pleased that we can order online as it is a two hour journey for us to the Lakes and I didn’t want to have to do that every couple of weeks when he runs out! Congratulations of a brilliant product.”
– Emma Hill


“Hi, We bought some of your King Naga and Banana Chilli Chutney on the market at Keswick yesterday. We LOVE the stuff. We’ve already polished off two jars of the chutney between two of us already! We only get up to the Lakes, Ambleside a couple of times a year to visit the in-laws. I NEED MORE!!!! How can I get it in Newbury Berkshire? Kindest regards Jo”
– Jo Dawson


“Hello first of all I’d like to say how amazing your products are – they are just brilliant. You can expect my next order in the very near future when I’ve eaten all the tasty products I’ve just received. I would just like to know what is the best way to store the product after I have opened them – is it best to put the in the fridge, or just store in the cupboard? Thanks.”
– Michael Anderson


“I bought a jar of your Banana Habenero at the Malvern Spring Gardening show. I am now a helpless addict. Will you be at the Malvern 3 Counties show?”
– Nicholas P


“Hi we own a convenience store, tearoom and B&B in the heart of Wensleydale and purchased some of your products whilst visiting the Lakes recently. We are very interested in stocking your products and I have noticed you don’t appear to have any stockists around us. Could you please get in touch via e-mail”
Lisa Wright, North Yorkshire


“Hi Adam, Thank you for the information I have ordered 3 jars of the Hot Goan Curry paste along with the wonderful Lime Pickle. I have no problem with you quoting me on the new web site and you may also wish to mention that the free recipe which came with jar has proved to be a winner with all my family and friends.”
– Ken Robinson


“Love this product (HHH) – been to farmers market at Houghton Towers.”
– Mr S Kent, Accrington


“I live in Warrington, between Manchester and Liverpool, and would like to know where I can buy your products. I bought some H.H.H. at the market in Keswick when we were on holiday and think its fantastic!”
– Lisa Stevenson


“Congratulations to you on being the ruler of my cupboards!!

Since being given some of your products for my birthday last year (I always ask for something special and local) I have been a major fan of all things Mr Vikkis to the extent that I asked this birthday could I only have things made by you!! May I congratulate you on your fresh approach to sauces / pickles etc. Whilst they are readily available in various guises from different companies I can honestly say there are none to compare.

Your lime pickle is so fresh tasting I would now be embarrassed to serve anything less and it also is the base for my most popular starter for a dinner party (or even as a Friday night baked potato filler) Try this one – mix prawns, mayo, lime pickle as an alternative to the old marie rose. I like to serve this with bahjis & salad but it is just as good with a baked potato on bonfire night. I have had so many compliments for this one! If you want to be posh it’s also really good in little tartlets with smoked salmon and the afore mentioned prawns.

Tomato and Nigella, well where do I start! I have wolfed my way through about 6 jars already. I got one for my birthday, I brought out some crackers and it was gone before it hit the cupboard! My guests ate all of it and I had to buy more for myself. My best tip is to serve it with a Barbecue it goes with everything.

Trusting you then with your magic for ingredients I tried the Hot Coriander, I don’t even like coriander but it is one of your best sauces along with Mr Vikki’s hot stuff which goes into lots of my meals. My family say they don’t like Indian food but anything with your Tandoori Curry Paste in always goes down a treat!

Well enough of the creeping, thank you for giving me a fantastic base for lots of my entertaining and day to day cooking. I wish you all the best in your future produce. If you were ever to need a tester I am only round the corner! (Penrith). Good luck and I hope for many good things to come.”
– Sarah Reid & family


“Hi, we have tried your two sauces after a trip to Keswick – Harry’s and Max’s sausage sauce and think they are fantastic – the rest of the family is converted too! We are from Preston and wonder were else we might be able to buy them – Keswick is a long trip for a few bottles of sauce?”
– Stephen and Anne Nicholas, Preston


“Hi, last week I bought some of your chilli jam from the stall at Keswick and it was gorgeous, unfortunately its all gone as I gave some to some friends who also thought it was delicious. I’d like to buy some more but its not available on the website and I live in Bury near Manchester so I can’t get to Keswick that often, so I was just wondering if it will be added to the other products on the website soon? I look forward to hearing from you.”
– Simon, Manchester


“Review about HHH Hell Hot Habanero – It is the best chilli product I have ever tasted and adds a distinctive and wonderful flavour however it is used. I use it on cold meats, cheese, in omelettes, etc, or to spice up any sort of cooked dish. Marvellous stuff. I will be buying more products from Mr Vikkis”
