Wiga Wagaa products are a culmination of my past eating experiences – in restaurants in the UK, and during my travels abroad to places like Mauritius, Ghana, Nigeria, Malaysia, Thailand, Morocco, Egypt, Spain & Portugal.
I enjoy eating a variety of foods and probably like yourself, the tastier the food the better. There are different ways of adding taste to food – it is either produced with the food during cooking, or you can add the taste in after cooking.
The second element to enjoying food is the sensation you feel during and after eating the food. By sensation I mean does the food have “life”? By “life” I mean does your body react in a pleasant way during that eating experience?
So, while I am eating food I ask myself the following questions. Does the food have a “kick” to it, and is it an enjoyable “kick”? By “kick” I mean does the food awaken my taste buds as well as my aroma senses?
Will this be a one off experience or will I want to eat the food again and again, today and another day? It is for this enjoyable eating experience that we go back to the same restaurants time and time again.
I found that Scotch Bonnet Chillies hotness and aroma complimented what I was looking to achieve – so Scotch Bonnet Chillies are used in preparing Wiga Wagaa chilli oil, sauce and paste. Having said that, I have developed other products with different chillies (Naga, Scorpion, Carolina Reaper) to increase the “heat” level while maintaining the taste, flavour and aroma.
Using my Biochemistry background and my love for tasty food, I have combined ingredients from different countries in a ratio that has the desired result – flavour, taste and kick
But, it’s not for me to judge. Why not try any of the Wiga Wagaa products and let me know what you think?

Can’t believe if not come across this guy before. Really exceptional products. Very individual flavours. Some searingly hot but others soothingly mild. Delicious. I’ll certainly be back for more.

Without doubt the most flavoursome super hot sauces I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. As a lover of serious heat, Wiga Wagaa’s sauces not only give u a serious heat kick but have some of the most complex and truly satisfying taste sensations I’ve ever experienced…

I tried the coconut cooking sauce with chicken and peppers and it was absolutely delicious. I literally had a beautiful meal on the table in under 20mins. I’ve also just tried the chilli mayo which is hot hot hot but also absolutely beautiful
Bought the coconut cooking sauce and jerk bbq sauce at whitley Bay food festival on Sunday and had coconut chicken yesterday and the jerk today, absolutely love both, fantastic flavour I wish I had bought more of both!
