Is it safe to eat Twizzlers while pregnant

I recently ate some twizzlers. The new ones with the sour filling in the inside and I found out that licorice (don't know how to spell it) is bad for the baby and will make them have ADHD and I'm so scared cuz I've been eating those things. I eat healthy and drink plenty of water but this really scared me. I eat candy every once and awhile and i ate some twizzlers. Does this harm the placenta and baby? It's like pregnant women can't eat anything at all but bread and beans. I feel so bad cuz I gobbled them down like nothing and I had no clue about them hurting the baby. Help please.

  • Lol the licorice won't give the baby ADHD, the sugar might so just don't eat a lot of them.
    You'll be fine.
    Where did you hear that licorice gives kids ADHD? That sounds like a really bad old wives tale to me.

    I ate craploads of licorice when I was pregnant with my son and he's perfectly fine.

  • Sorry OP, but I have never heard of such a thing... If you are worried, call your Dr. and ask, if anyone would know more about it, it would be him/her..

  • The only thing you could consume that would harm the baby are alcohol or drugs!
