Perhaps it's a similar fast food burger dressing we use here?

I looked at Heinz's France website, and it's called American Sauce.
On their Spain website, the same thing is called American Burger Sauce.

I don't speak any other languages, but someone else can check. I suspect that the Spain result is a good explanation.

From the nutrition information, the ingredients are pretty standard: oil, water, sugar, tomato puree, vinegar, mustard, spices, etc. Sounds like the 'Secret Sauce' things that all the chains use for burgers, onion rings, etc.

In our house, dog hair is a condiment!
OMG! I decided to blog!

Yeah, it's probably somebody's idea of the Secret Sauce that goes on Two All-Beef Patties, Pickles, Onions, on a Sesame Seed Bun ... and it's not sold here because we would know it was something faked up!

At first I thought it was this ...

Kraft Miracle Whip Secret Burger Sauce, 12-Ounce (Pack of 6): Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

Then I saw it wasn't by Kraft. Out of curiosity I bought a bottle of this earlier this year. I'm guessing it's similar.

I'm not sure how I feel about something being labeled "American Sauce". I wonder if it's how Italians feel about Italian Dressing or the French about French Dressing.

A few decades ago, Hellmann's marketed a burger sauce that was very close to McDonald's special sauce for Big Macs. It didn't last long.

I'm no help either. I've never seen anything like that. I might Google it.

I still don't know what it is. Maybe it's pay back for the term "French Dressing"

I think it is a sauce that is perceived as being American.
