It is unlikely, but conceivable that the sugar is causing an allergic reaction and that the reaction is accompanied by excess salivation.  Or, it could be a mechanical problem, if you have a chronically dry throat.  If you choke with any other ingested substances, solid, semi-solid or liquid, that would be a different matter and, in that case, you should have a medically supervised swallowing study

You might try avoidance of highly sugar content foods for a while and selectively seek foods sweetened by artificial sweeteners.

Good luck
