How to Get Rid of Hiccups

4. Sweet, Sour or Savory

Even if water is failing to help relieve your hiccups, there are some other remedies available. The following remedies are the ones that I like to call “the tasty tricks” because they all involve different flavors. You could try swallowing something sweet, like honey or sugar. Or you could try swallowing something salty like salt or peanut butter. There are also some sour flavors you could try. For example,  a few drops of vinegar or hot sauce on your tongue, or sucking on a lemon. By eating and swallowing these foods, you interrupt your breathing. In addition, the granule textures (like sugar) help to reset the nerves in your esophagus.
