    Does anyone have more info on liquorice? I have taken a rather large fancy to the "Panda" natural liquorice, but although the woman at the health shop thought it was ok to eat during pregnancy, I had read elsewhere that it should be avoided. Apparently could bring on labour?
    It was cheesecake last week and now this...... help - have a pack sitting here and I'm desperate to rip it open!!!!! :shock: :? :( :cry: :roll:

    I have never ever heard that one?!!
    I've heard of cheesecake because of raw stuff in it...but not liquorice. I've been eating since I found out I was PG. But then for someone who has been threatening prem-labour - maybe I'm not the best person to tell you it's fine? :shock:

    cheese cake is fine if it's shop bought as it's parsturised, it's just home made stuff you can't eat :D same as mayo

    i have the world's best cheesecake recipe (no eggs, so you can eat it even if you are avoiding raw eggs in pregnancy, which i've been a bit relaxed about anyway! lol)

    who wants it??

    I found egg-free mayonaise in Tescos the other day, and it's not bad at all

    Sorry about link not working... what it did say was......" a study has shown that women that do eat liquorice during pregnancy was more prone to going into labour earlier than the women that avoided liquorice.

    About cheesecake - I'm BAKING my own.... not into fridge cheesecakes at all. Recipe sounds nice though.
    I'm getting back to my liquorice now.... chow chow!!
