So sorry you weren't able to find the food you were looking for in the data base by trying different methods. SparkPeople has a 10,000+ item food database but not always what people need. You are able to manually enter the nutritional information for that item and then save it in your favorites for easy retrieval. This FAQ walks you through the process if you are unfamiliar.

I did try that method. Did you try this to see if it works? Thanks.

We use the USDA data base as our foundation so using that as a guide might help. When getting results for member entered data like the you listed, be sure you have selected "Search foods shared by other members" under the options and then just enter basic things like "fries" and you are likely to find more options.

I can search the database and fine "In n Out animal style French fries" but when I enter "fries in out," nothing (sans quotes.) I am a programmer, know how to enter search parameters. Anyone???? I am wondering how many items I am NOT finding due to this issue. Thanks!
