Clearly traditional condiments were too slow for In-N-Out's Double Double. Many diners at the time were serving up a what today is known as classic burger sauce. In-N-Out had their own take on the matter, and labeled it In-N-Out Spread. It's In-N-Out's secret sauce, and they put it on their burgers, and Animal Style French fries.
Many people think In-N-Out's sauce is just a re-incarnation of Thousand Island, but they'd be wrong. The other mistake is to use hot-dog relish. Has In-N-Out ever sold hot-dogs? Why would they put sweet relish in their sauce?

The result was this:
