The survey conducted by C and G Baby Club Community has found that old favorites such as chocolate, pickles and crisps still top the list of pregnancy cravings, the Daily star reported.

Some mums even admitted to craving the smell of tree bark and shoe polish, while some claimed to have craved combinations of foods, including bananas with marmite, ice cream and chips and Nutella-topped cheese and onion crisps.

According to the survey, 11 per cent of pregnant women said that they craved soap, while 6 per cent fancied chalk and 5 per cent said that they craved toothpaste.

However, 25 per cent of mums-to-be found themselves craving desserts, while 18 percent craved red meat and 13 per craved for extra vegetables.
