There are very few times in life where I feel genuinely special, and sadly enough we’ve arrived at one now. Yes, I am part of the 11% who knew this ketchup hack prior to reading about it, although it’s completely useless to me as I don’t really like ketchup. Yellow mustard, mayonnaise, honey mustard and hot sauce > ketchup. Dog shit, stained underwear and getting audited by the IRS > ketchup. Death > ketchup. Ketchup, if you need the hint, is not my favorite condiment by a long shot, and not just because it’s a pain in the ass to dispense when contained in a glass bottle.
But according to Heinz, there’s a trick to getting ketchup to pour evenly out of a bottle, and the key is the “57” located at the neck:
Via an interview with Mirror, a spokesperson for Heinz said that the only thing you gotta know is that “the sweet spot to tap on the Heinz bottle is the embossed 57 on the neck. All you need to do is apply a firm tap where the bottle narrows, and the ketchup will come out easier.”
Supposedly only 11% of people know this fact, which means that after reading this you’ll be part of an illustrious percentage of people who know about an almost completely useless ketchup bottle hack. Congratulations — life as you know it will probably remain the same, no better and no worse.
