Apparently We’ve Been Using Glass Ketchup Bottles All Wrong

According to Heinz, there is a designated "sweet spot" on the iconic bottle

You know the struggle — you’re about to drench your fries with tomato-y goodness and you’re faced with a glass ketchup bottle. The next minute of your life is far from smooth as you aggressively smack the back of the bottle, hoping for a few generous drops.

Apparently, we’ve been doing it all wrong. According to Heinz’s FAQ page, by way of BuzzFeed, there is a “sweet spot” in the “57” pressed into the glass bottle that allows the ketchup to flow easier than a squeeze bottle.
