Does anyone else here get the hiccups after eating a hard boiled egg?ย  What’s up with that??

  1. Yes – have always gotten hiccups as soon as I eat hard boiled eggs. It doesn’t matter if they are whole or (like today) in egg salad.

    I logged on to find out why and never saw such an array of total bullsh*t and uninformed guesses by folks who obviously have no knowledge of eggs, hard boiled eggs, human anatomy and physiology, etc. These “answers” amounted to no more than ill-informed guesses, including (get this) that “air” escapes from the egg when you chew it and the air causes a hiccup.

    If I ever find out the actual cause, I’ll post it.

    • LOL…I don’t think Abigail ever found a reason for it. If you find one, I’m sure she’d appreciate you sharing it! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I haven’t found one yet, either. But I don’t think I get hiccups when I eat hard-boiled eggs in egg salad. I’ll have to take notes next time.

    • I wish someone had a real answer to this weird reaction. I get hiccups each and every time I eat hard boiled eggs! Never get them any other way I cook eggs . strange but glad it’s not just me lol.

    • Best info I got from sites Iโ€™ve visited – Iโ€™m not the only one that experiences this, all โ€˜victimsโ€™ are apparently still alive so it must not be fatal ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. I get hiccups from hard boiled eggs and egg salad. I just started taking notice and it happens every time. I don’t have an answer as to why but I know it happens to me

  3. I was looking for a reason too. I get them every time I eat a hard boiled egg. So strange. I saw someone say it is because there is a lot of air in eggs so it makes you hiccup. Wouldn’t that make you burp, not hiccup? LOL
