4) Glass Ketchup Bottle

How many times have you smacked the bottom of the Heinz bottle in vain? The trick we’ve heard is that smacking the 57 imprinted on the glass is the intended way to get slow-moving ketchup moving. In other countries, the 57 is replaced by the word “Heinz” and the trick applies to that spot as well.
