LOS ANGELES — Turns out, the In-N-Out “monkey-style” burger doesn’t officially exist. This could potentially be the biggest food conspiracy/upset of the century.

It was supposed to be a burger with an order of so-called animal-style fries, otherwise known as fries topped with grilled onions, spread and cheese, inside the burger. A massive, cheesy, potatoey, meaty monumental In-N-Out creation.

But In-N-Out says it’s just a myth.

“There is no such thing,” Carl Van Fleet, a vice president at In-N-Out Burger, said in a statement. “It seems to be a story that originated somewhere in cyberspace. For a variety of reasons, we’re unable to prepare burgers in the manner that a few websites have described as ‘monkey style.’ ”

It all started last week after FoodBeast blogger Elie Ayrouth posted a video of himself ordering, then eating the “monkey-style” creation and sent people running to In-N-Out to get their hands on their own. The problem? See above (“there is no such thing”).
