According to the Food and Drug Administration and their guidelines to our food growers, there are probably quite a few insects in your ketchup, and in other foods you eat. Tomato worms, flys, beetles, spiders and rat hair are just a few ‘added ingredients’ that you will consume. In fact, it’s guesstimated that the average American eats one to two pounds of bug parts each year, without even knowing it. Of course, there is a simple explanation for this: despite the worlds best pest control regulations and policies, there is no way our growers can keep all bugs out of our food. So the FDA allows a certain amount of bug parts and rat hair into our food supply.

You gotta learn the proper way to rip the pack open. Make it a very narrow opening so you can easily distribute the ketchup.

Open it wide, and just a big blob going to fall on one side

But on another note...., a small drink is what used to be medium, a medium is what used to be large, and large wont even fit my cup holder. I don't want all that soda!?

At most places they use these now, which are bigger than the 1 traditional package.
and if you're from texas than you know these

 
Yep, these all day. Usually only need 1, maybe two. How much ketchup you put on your food OP

This is true. Consumers "win" because they get more soda, restaurants win because they are able to charge the customer more for something they usually don't want all of (they want you to upsize), and the soda companies win because more of their product has to be purchased by the restaurants. It's a cycle.
