While most may argue against me, I think nothing goes better with a hot dog than ketchup. In fact, I am the sort who takes a little hot dog with her ketchup. Seriously, I SMOTHER them in the red blood of the gods to the point where most of it will drip all over my lap after one bite. So, of course, it’s probably not surprising that one of my favorite weird roadside attractions is the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle in Collinsville, Illinois.

Worlds Largest Catsup Bottle in Collinsville, Illinois

Unfortunately there is no ketchup in the catsup bottle, instead the structure serves as a water tower for Collinsville, Illinois — original home of the W.E. Caldwell Company for the G.S. Suppiger who bottled Brooks catsup. Completed in 1949 the giant bottle was erected as a way to supply water for plant operations and sprinkler system. Today’s it’s a shining red condiment in the sky that brings locals together, stops travelers in their tracks…and may be the only bottle of ketchup big enough to satisfy my cravings.
