Hi thelongestroute,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Would you mind letting us know how you are finding that food listing? Are you finding it via google search? Or you are searching the food database from Food < Database? Or are you finding it when navigating through Food > Diary > search “Frankie and Bennies – Chicago Grinder Calzone”? Please walk us through exactly what you’re clicking on and what search terms you are using.

We look forward to hearing back.

from diary, add food, search database, pringles buffalo ranch(for example also tried Pillsbury streudel), get multiple matching foods but will not display the food clicked so it can be added to diary. tried clicking on several of the matching foods. nothing comes up.
