All hail the Heinz ketchup trick!

Have you been agonising over the way you get the ketchup out of a Heinz bottle?

Probably not, because you live in a world that not only has knives to rattle around in it, but also, a spoiled existence where you can throw a bit of tomato sauce out without worrying yourself unduly.

Either way, we're here to tell you about the trick, which will help you in your quest to cover things in red gunk.

Heinz say that the secret to getting the ketchup out is where you tap on the bottle. Yes, there's a sweet spot.

Look at the bottle, and on the glass neck, you'll notice that there's a '57' on it. That's it. That's the magic spot where the ketchup magic happens.

A spokesperson for Heinz said: 'To release ketchup faster from a glass bottle, here is a little secret from Heinz."

"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."

Try it. If it turns out to be complete nonsense, go and abuse Heinz on Twitter or something. Or start buying those squeezy bottles.
