Featuring… The hidden Hershey kiss – What would you say if I told you that when you buy a packet of Hershey kisses, you’re always leaving one behind? Well that’s the case because snook in between the K and I on the packaging is the shape of one of the tasty chocolates. A very clever bit of design, but I just wish that it was another edible kiss.Petrol gauge arrow – We’ve all seen people desperately trying to stretch the petrol pump around the back of their car as they’ve pulled up on the wrong side, but little did they know that they could have stopped this all along. Symbols on plastic bottles – Anyone who has bought a drink in a plastic bottle may have noticed a number in a triangle on the base of the bottle. This isn’t a weird design feature, but is actually there to indicate what kind of plastic the bottle is made of. Hidden Queen head on Pound Notes – On the U.S. dollar there is the all-seeing eye so often associated with the illuminati, but in the U.K. the only set of eyes that are always watching you are the Queen. If you hold up a British note to the light, through part of the note, an outline of the Queen’s face shows up that you wouldn’t otherwise see. Just remember guys, she’s always watching. Double Quarter Pounder From McDonalds – Secret menus at everywhere from Starbucks to KFC have taken over the internet in recent years, but one order from McDonalds seems to go neglected. If you think a normal quarter pounder wouldn’t fill you up enough, you can order a double and the upgrade will only set you back the price of a cheeseburger. Now you and Samuel L Jackson can really enjoy your Royale With Cheese. Hidden shield pattern on british coins – What British money doesn’t have in value after voting for Brexit, it certainly has in hidden secrets as once again pound sterling makes this video. Camera symbol – If you picked up a camera and saw this symbol on the side of it, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d accidentally bought into a cult, but you’d be wrong. British/European Standards – Packaging comes with so many symbols on it that sometimes it can get confusing as to whether these symbols are there for decorative purposes or whether they mean something. Royal Seal of approval – Unlike the previous symbol, one thing you’re unlikely to see this stamp on is contraception. That’s because this symbol is the Royal Seal of Approval – a stamp only given to products that are bought regularly by members of the royal family. Statue of Liberty spikes – one spike per continent – Everyday people from around the world come to visit the Statue of Liberty and admire her welcoming presence. Product expiry after opened – Ever seen this little tin on the side of the packaging and been confused about what it means? Well worry no more, as I can confirm that the number inside of the tin doesn’t indicate how many portions of food this could be, but rather how long the product will last after it has been opened. King of hearts – no moustacheless – The curly moustache is undoubtedly the most regal of all facial hair choices, but for the king of hearts – it just isn’t for him. Where his club, spade, and diamond counterparts are all sporting the twizzly-tash the king of hearts is clean shaven – a little something that you really wouldn’t know, unless you’ve got a bit of a poker problem. Google maps – explore the tardis – Google maps is a great way to kill some time when you’re trying to get on with work, but this gimmick might take that procrastination to a whole other level.
