Chicory Peek FAQs


What is Chicory Peek?

Chicory Peek is what we call our highly-targeted native ad units. This ad unit highlights certain ingredients in your recipes and provides coupons or special ecommerce offers to your readers. Say, you’re writing a post about your perfect Game Day Spinach Artichoke Dip, which calls for Greek yogurt. And Chicory is running a Chicory Peek campaigns for a yogurt company.. Now, within your recipe, a coupon or other special offer will appear for Greek yogurt--automatically! We’re able to do this thanks to our proprietary natural language processing technology; and these contextual, native ads earn you money every time they appear! Here’s what a Chicory Peek ad for chicken looks like:

Chicory Peek is not a sponsored post. Our ads will appear network-wide and on every recipe that contain targeted ingredient(s). You do not need to apply for these campaigns nor get approval from Chicory. Provided you haven’t requested any kind of opt out, Chicory Peek ads will appear on your site.



How do I opt in to brand campaigns?

If you would like to participate in our Chicory Peek campaigns, you do not need to take any action. The emails that you receive serve as an informational notice designed to give you transparency as to the brands and ads that will appear on your site. We know that conflicts can arise, so we continue to issue these notices--many partners write sponsored content, have dietary restrictions, and have personal brand preferences that may lead to an opt out. Email us if you’re confused or have questions about when or why you might want to opt out of a Chicory Peek campaign.



What kind of opt-out settings are available for Chicory Peek campaigns?

There are a few ways to customize your Chicory Peek settings and preferences.

  • Full opt out: If you wish to remove all current and future campaigns from your site, you can disable ads by logging into your dashboard, heading to “My Account” and selecting “Opt me out of Chicory Peek.” If you are not sure that blacklisting all campaigns is right for you, you can reach out to Amanda at

  • Campaign-based opt out: This option is best if you need to opt out of advertisements based on the brand being promoted. Perhaps we are working with Banana Brand X, but you’re a brand ambassador for Branded Bananas, Inc. Let us know via email and we can handle this opt out for the specific brand campaign in question.

  • Campaign tag opt out: This tool allows you to select tags for ingredients or products that you would like to exclude from running on your site. Campaign tags denote ingredient categories such as meat or dairy. We offer these options so that if you’re a vegan food blogger, you never need to worry about opting out of a milk or chicken ad campaign. If you have these settings up-to-date, there is no need to follow up and reply to our ad campaign announcements. To update your settings, log into your Chicory dashboard, select “Ad Settings” and choose which tags you would like to exclude.

  • Specific post opt outs: If you have a sponsored post or specific recipe that you do not want Chicory Peek ads appearing on, just send the link to We will deactivate all Chicory Peek campaigns on that post.
