Trader Joe's Magnifisauce Review

Product Description: 9.5 ounce bottle of sauce similar to In and Out Burger and a Big Mac sauce.
Brand: Trader Joe's

Creamy Pickle Relish Flavor
Trader Joe’s Magnifique sauce tastes like McDonald’s Big Mac sauce or In and Out’s burger sauce.
I personally am not a fan of the flavor profile of this high calorie condiment.
One of the random condiments that I bought on my last trip to Trader Joe’s was the Magnifisauce. I didn’t know much about the product but the label looked cool and it wasn’t too expensive so I decided to give it a try.
It turns out this sauce is somewhat of a clone of the sauce used by the In and Out burger chain and, while it has interesting flavors, is not for me.

How Does Trader Joe’s Magnifisauce Taste?
I have been eating this sauce on some Tyson breaded chicken strips that I cooked in my Ninja Foodie air fryer.
The sauce tasted like a tangy, sweet and creamy pickle relish. I haven’t tried the In and Out Burger sauce but I can say that this tastes similar to McDonald’s Big Mac sauce.
If you want a Big Mac type sauce then you should like Trader Joe’s Magnifisauce just fine.
Personally this flavor profile is not my jam.
Reviews From Amazon Customers
I wanted to see what other people thought about this sauce so I checked out the customer reviews on Amazon. There were 166 reviews for this salsa on Amazon as of November, 2021 which is enough information to draw some general conclusions.
Folks were really mixed on their feelings about this sauce with only 73% liking it enough to leave a 5 or 4 Star review.
Some of the Positive comments left by Amazon customers include:
- Amazing!! Taste just like In n’ Out burger sauce. Just what we need when we crave it but don’t have any around us.
- Awesome flavor for just about anything!!!
Some of the Negative comments left by Amazon customers include:
- Close but is not In-n-Out sauce. Everyone was saying this is a clone, it is not. It doesn’t have the same consistency.
- Really a disappointment. Bland imitation of other sauces.
- Tastes suspiciously like Thousand Island salad dressing with added chunks of something.
