The Mama Burger offered by A&W. The Mama Burger Description reads.

A perfectly seasoned patty of 100% pure beef – raised without artificial hormones and steroids – topped with pickles, a slice of onion, ketchup, mustard and Teen® sauce, served on a freshly toasted sesame seed bun.

The Teen Sauce Ingredients are listed as.

canola oil, water, sugar, vinegar, modified corn starch, egg yolk, salt, mustard powder, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate, caramel, spices, calcium disodium EDTA, spice extract.

To me this seems like a Seasoned Mayonnaise. The Go To Sauce for Teen Sauce is Mayo with BBQ Sauce. Some say Thousand Island Dressing. It just might be BBQ Seasoned Mayonnaise.
