Occasionally I’ll get some pretty bad hiccups due to my heart condition. Nothing extreme, but they sure do hurt.
About two days ago after lunch with a friend, I started getting them bad. She could tell it was uncomfortable for me just by the look on my face after each loud hiccup.
“Did you know there’s a remedy for hiccups? I saw it on the news,” she said.
“Really?” I said bewildered (I’ve tried every crazy hiccup remedy ever created). I was intrigued.
“You’re going to think I’m crazy… It’s a lollipop. A girl invented it to help cure her hiccups when she was 13 years old!”
Well, I was a bit skeptical but I nonetheless interested. If a lollipop could cure my hiccups, I wanted 100.
I did a bit of digging and found out what my friend was talking about. It’s a product called Hiccupops – How To Get Rid of Hiccups For Good. I was very impressed with what I read. Apparently it was created as a cheap and easy way to cure the inventors hiccups when she was a little girl. Below is a video I found of her explaining what they are and how they are made
Inevitably I pre-ordered a bunch of them. If they work, I will be very happy. The only real hiccup “remedy” I’ve gotten to work for me is holding my breath and drinking a full glass of water (while holding my nose). But I can’t exactly do that in public without looking like a crazy person…
I will report back when I try my first Hiccupop!
