American Sauce?? Made in America?

Here is a new one on me. Is this sauce something Americans eat on a regular basis? Did it originate in America? Or, was it some rendition of sauce which originated form some other country and is called American Sauce. Seems to be some sort of sauce with a 1000 Island base and other things mixed in there.....

That is the first time I have seen that. I wonder if it is sold in Canada, will they call it Canadian Sauce?

I've never seen it here, but it's sold in Germany. Tastes like a mix of cocktail sauce and thousand island dressing.

I wonder if that is Fry Sauce??? I have never seen that in the store, either. Many places have a "secret sauce" they make for dipping french fries, that looks like it, in color at least.

here is that lost "u"...

There's a discussion about it on the Paris Blog. It seems to be available in several countries on mainland Europe. I haven't noticed it in Britain but that doesn't mean it isn't available here.

That's what I was thinking PF ... maybe it's that or Comeback Sauce.

Took a look at the Paris blog .. funny comments .. "maybe it's ground up Americans" LOL

Wonder why American Sauce is not available in America?

It also looks like the sauce for onion strings or onion flowers.
