Teen Invents Cure for Hiccups..with a Lollipop
13-year old girl Mallory Kievman suffered from incessant hiccups. Frustrated that nothing seemed to work, she decided to create her own remedy, the Hiccupop.
The Hiccupop is a lollipop with a critical active ingredient -apple cider vinegar. And now, with less time with her own hiccups, Mallory was ready to spread her cure to the rest of the hiccuping world.
She entered her sweet treat in the annual Connecticut Invention Convention and won the top prize for ‘innovation’ and ‘patentability’. As part of her prize, she is now working with a team of University of Connecticut graduate business students to market and sell her product to the public.
