  1. Den

    Have been buying this stuff for a couple of years, recently put an order in which included 1 for me and 4 for others. Took the “Banana ‘Hab” as one of my friends nicknamed it to the pub, had to buy another 10 jars yesterday!! Brilliant Stuff

  2. Banjo

    Found this in Mmm&Glug in Newcastle, what a revelation! Can’t get enough of it, it goes with everything. Just the right amount of heat and sweet.

  3. Keswick Hari Kari

    We discovered Mr Vikkis on a holiday in Keswick, my favourite is the Hot Banana Habanero, a delicious accompaniment to our indian cookery. I was incredibly excited to discover I could buy it online as I’d struggled to find it since our holiday a few years ago.

    I don’t normally like pickle much, but I can’t live without this one! Spread it on your cheese on toast – spread it before you toast it, or the cheese mushes up – and grill it until the cheese bubbles. There’s nothing quite like it!

  5. coopermoto

    This is absolutely delicious. I bought a jar at a chilli festival last weekend and now it’s empty. I have just ordered 5 more jars! Great in sandwiches with ham or cheese or even just plastered on a ryvita.

  6. Dil

    This is absolutely delicious, a direct replacement for the traditional mango pickle. Never tried anything like it before. Banana doesn’t sound right in this recipe, but it actually works! Flavours are wonderful. Perfect with poppadoms. Very addictive though, so you may want to buy more than 1 pot.

    Never tasted such a wonderful taste before in Korea. If I live in UK, I will buy this, every week! Are there any guys who come to Korea? who can carry Banana Habanero for me?

  8. LittleBird

    Hot Banana Habenero is life.

  9. Roger

    Wow……introduced by a friend (along with his Bananna and Beetroot currry), I left with half a jar which i then had for breakfast. Most exciting food find ever.

    My husband originally bought a jar of this for himself from Chilli Pepper Pete’s in Brighton. I tried it and got hooked so ordered 3 more jars on line. it’s just about at the top of my heat threshold. Lovely with a hunk of cheddar cheese. Who’d have thought banana and chilli would work but it does!

  11. Steve Crowe

    Tried in Waitrose at deli counter. Wow. Delicious, hot (but not too hot) and goes great with oat crackers and s strong mature cheddar. Going in a few hampers for friends at Christmas for sure – if I don’t eat it first 😉

  12. Rik

    Easily the best pickle I have ever tasted.

  13. tomkycraig72 (verified owner)

    The best pickle I have ever tried, I finished one jar off the day I had it delivered. I will be ordering more of this.

  14. Sarge

    Bloody brilliant. I hate fighting heat levels – this has great flavour without overwhelming heat. That said the heat is definitely present. A brilliantly balanced chutney.

  15. Henry Davey

    Bought some from the Guildford Cheese and Chilli Festival. As a distance runner everyone knows that banana and peanut butter on a bagel or toast is the breakfast of champions. I’ve just discovered that banana habanero and peanut butter on toast is the afternoon (or evening, after beet and gin) snack!!!! Amazing stuff. Luckily I’m off to The Lakes in a couple of weeks.

  16. Michael Duggan

    Genius product. I put on toast and then add sliced banana on top. Nice.

  17. Debs

    We love this product especially with crusty beetroot bread, buying 6 pots at a time now – highly recommend. Used it at curry night with friends everyone loved it

  18. J Benton

    Absolutely superb, if only it was available in 1/2kg jars!

  19. Tara Hardman

    WOW! This is just the best chutney ever, came across it at The Dorset Chilli Festival,and never looked back its the only one we have now,everybody loves it,what a winner! He new what he was talking about when he sold it to us,lucky we got to buy some else we would of never known about this great stuff!!! Great with cheese!

    Delicious marinade on Chicken I roasted the chicken and had it with Coconut Rice once you try this you wouldn’t want roast chicken without it.

  21. K (verified owner)

    Perfection in a bottle! Can’t get enough of it.

  22. Steve Danby (verified owner)

    “Superb”, doesn’t do it justice.

  23. James Barry (verified owner)

    Genuinely one of the nicest pickles I’ve ever had. I just throw it on anything and it works! Had to order myself another 3 jars!

  24. Cassy Webb

    Found banana habernero at a market in Spain, then promptly opened jar and dipped chips in it….. delicious!! Just discovered that I can order it online…. it will be amazing with vegetarian curries in place of mango chutney

  25. Robert Symons (verified owner)

    A splendid mix of hot, sweet and damn tasty!! You can’t beat this for an accompaniment, absolute heaven!

    This is by far one of most unique and tastiest products I have ever eaten. Try it on a bacon sandwich. You’ll never look back.

    Need Banana Habanero Merc! This is the Sistine Chapel of food! We’re planning a journey to the Lake District just to be nearer to the source of such joy…. Bless you. I wasn’t religious but now…..

      Cheers John great words!

    This Banana Habanero is the best sauce ever. I always make sure I have a few pots on the shelf. It is totally unique and on most occasions I get a teaspoon, and put a large dollop on a cheese biscuit and just have it neat!! Gorgeous. What with the ‘Great Taste’ award, it is a ‘must have’. Many thanks.

    Elevates a cheese sandwich to something sublime.

    Please consider making bigger jars – I get through about 1 a week!

      Thanks Jim

  31. Alan

    When i first saw one of these I thought that combo will never work
    How wrong I was “Its Awesome” love this and i always have some to hand its great to add the currys and is just as delicious on a burger 🙂 The Habanero Chilli Jam is excellent as well, Great to see you at Eastnor Chilli Fest

    • mrvikkis

      Hi Alan great to see you too thanks for the great review

  32. Glenn Nicholl

    Absolutely no idea why I bought this. Bought it on a whim. Bananas and habanero! Absolutely can not live without it. It goes on everything and just elevates everything.
    Current favorite is spreading it on sausage sandwiches.

    I’ve been buying this for the last 6 years and I never tire of it. It’s absolutely delicious and perks up even the most mundane meal – e.g. beans on toast 🙂
