GAHH - I ate Twizzlers!


Didn't know we couldn't eat licorice during pregnancy? I was crazy Twizzlers like crazy while me and my OH were shopping for snacks at Dollar Tree last night. Should I be worried? I haven't finished the pack, but I'd like to! I've had about 7 or 8 sticks since last night.

I'm so scared I did something stupid!

Yummy!

From my understanding liqorice may increase blood pressure, so if you suffer with high blodd pressure then best to stay away.

Don't worry you'll be fine, you'd have to eat a hell of a lot of it to cause any damage! Just looked it up and it is artificially flavoured with anise oil as well as naturally so probably has little real licorice.

Twizzlers are one of the few that do have real root but don't worry as you would have to be consistently eating really high levels over a period of time.

Wow I never heard you couldn't eat that - not that I like it.
To be honest I'm not taking too much notice of the banned food list now I am past 2nd tri, it seems silly to me.

it's totally fine...you would have to eats tons and tons of twizzlers for anything tohappen. Twizzlers have very very little real licorice in them anyway. It's mostly just sugar and oil!

I had a mini freak out about this recently too!! Don't worry hon, you would have to eat a truck load of it for it to have any effect. I ate a whole bag a few weeks ago and my little one is fine xxx
