Hiccupops: a candy experiment that turned into a cure

My daughter brought home an article in Time for Kids about 13-year-old Mallory Kievman, who says she's invented a cure for the hiccups. After testing all sorts of various hiccup cures, and deciding that the most effective were apple cider vinegar, sugar, and lollipops, she combined them into a hiccup-curing lollipop. Now she's working to turn Hiccupops into a retail brand. You can find more information and news articles at her website, hiccupop.com.

What can your family invent with candy experiments?
