I have the same issue!! It literally opens with ever single thing i enter - breakfast: eggs (protein bar ad opens, have to close), toast (protein bar ad opens, have to close), tomato (protein bar ad opens, have to close), coffee (protein bar ad opens, have to close)....OMG!! It drives me nuts!! It takes me SOOOOO long to enter a whole days worth of food. I close it around 20+ times just in one sitting.
I def am developing a negative association with protein bars and am boycotting them also!!
I'm really sorry that ad is getting in your way. That is never our intention with ads! We are aware of the issue with this particular ad and are working to get that corrected. Sorry for the inconvenience!
In the meantime, I saw a post by another member who describes how they avoid the issue with that ad by changing the size of their window to 'hide' it. You can read their tip here; it is the 2nd oldest post in this thread:
Every time I click in the Food Tracker search box, the Pure Protein ad opens up. I'm being very careful where I point when I click but this happens EVERY TIME. This is annoying. So annoying, in fact, that I've decided that I will never purchase a Pure Protein product.
