The sugar cube works for me too, although I have no idea why.
I get hiccups a lot as I have gastric reflux disease. Oddly, if I get them once I always get them 3 times in the day.
I find holding my breath for a count of 30 or the old remedy, drinking a glass of water from the other side of the glass (effectively up-side-down). A friend swears by breathing in and out of a paper bag.
Gaviscon helps too.
