Should In-N-Out be required to put the nutrition information of their "Animal Style" sauce on their website?

Asked by Carly (4555points) February 13th, 2012

I was looking at the nutrition information on their website, and I thought it was interesting that their animal style sauce wasn’t on there. I know it’s supposed to be part of In-N-Out’s “secret” menu, but they’re still giving it to customers who ask for it.

Yeah, I think so. I thought restaurants were required to list their nutrition/ingredients either online or by giving you a pamphlet. I bet if you called them or e-mailed them a few times and suggested that you or your kid has certain allergies, they would likely give it to you. I don’t think they’d want to risk a lawsuit. They don’t have to tell you the amounts of the ingredients, so it’s not like they’d be giving away their recipe.

MyFitnessPal says it’s 80 cals and 9g of fat. No other nutritional value otherwise.

I guess to them it’s just a condiment and not worth mentioning as a food item in and of itself. They don’t list ketchup or mustard on their own either.

Why must they, and others, be required to anything. Why don’t you simply ask for the information. If they refuse to give it (it seems they are not refusing), spend your money someplace else. It is curious to me that people so often want someone else to do their homework for them, or worse to be hired guns.

I have never understood why everyone seems to love In-N-Out, it’s “alright” at best….edible if you’re starving, but certainly not something I’d ever seek out.

“Animal style” is just cooked in mustard, nothing else.

@cheebdragon They’re pretty damn good compared to other drive-ins. The only better burgers in Los Angeles is Tommy’s triple chili cheeseburger.

@saint I don’t think they should be required, but there are laws for everything these days, so that’s why I asked the question

@saint : You can’t do the homework if you don’t have access to the data.

@zenvelo : Animal style also grills the onions and uses more than the usual serving of spread on top of the Mustard-grilled burger.

Don’t mean to be rude, but what nutrition can you expect from a burger joint’s sauce? I would wonder if it is the nutritional value that is of interest here, or is it the recipe that people want posted on the web site.

@Skaggfacemutt I guess the fat content would be something I’d be interested in. If it was ½ gram of fat per serving I would still get it, but if it was over 50% fat, probably not.

@Carly Oh, I see. I have never really dieted much myself. I thought the question here was vitamins and minerals.
