It's a Hiccupop! Believe it or not, this lollipop can get rid of your hiccups. I have tried everything from holding my breath to drinking water upside down and nothing seems to work. A 13-year-old, Mallory Kievman, from Manchester, Connecticut is responsible for this patent. She won top honors for innovation and patentability at the Connecticut Invention Convention last spring. Mallory learned everything she needed to know about hiccups before she tried to invent a cure. After multiple attempts to find the perfect solution, she discovered that sugar and apple cider vinegar worked the best. The vinegar overstimulates the nerves that are responsible for the hiccups so they actually cancel each other out. How interesting! Mallory must be one brilliant kid!
