Everyone, meet Mallory Kievman, a young woman inventor who just may be on the brink of doing something remarkable.

Anytime you are 13 and invent ANYTHING, that is FEEL GOOD DEPOT AWESEOME. PERIOD!!!

She has worked out ingredients for a lollipop that seems to cancel out the hiccup reflex and is in the midst of creating a company (with the help of some MBA students) and getting a patent for her invention.

She’s been tweaking her recipe in the kitchen at home. Hiccupop’s admixture of lollipops, apple cider vinegar and sugar needs to be more palatable, she says, but the combination of ingredients seems to affect the nerves in the throat and mouth believed to cause the hiccup reflex. “It basically over-stimulates those nerves and cancels out the message to hiccup,” Mallory told the Times.

She is totally someone to be inspired by and we here at the Feel Good Depot hope to see more kids like her as she attempts to cure the hiccups.

GO TEAM MALLORY. You do your FAMILY PROUD and good luck. I hope you cure the world of this nusiance and we see at least one of these in every first-aid kit in America!!!
