Sandwiches, bars, bonbons and even mochi. While cones are generally the standard, several brands available in grocery stores offer an assortment of ice cream treats. Among contenders in our newsroom taste test, classics such as the Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake bar and Nestle’s Drumstick earned points for bringing back childhood memories. But newcomers including Coolhaus sandwiches, Trader Joe’s Bon Bons, Snickers Ice Cream and Haagen Dazs bars are winning fans.
Americans and ice cream. Our torrid affair continues even as other countries such and China and New Zealand have begun to outpace us in the market. Still, we are champs when it comes to per-capita consumption. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, our voracious appetite for ice cream peaked in 1946 when the war ended and sugar rations were lifted. We were consuming 20 pounds each per year. Holy cow!
The origins of the martini are as murky as – oh, how can we resist? – a dirty martini. Some cocktail historians think it was born in the town of Martinez, California, during the Gold Rush, and in a humble way. A suddenly rich prospector had a hankering for Champagne, but there was none on hand at the local saloon, so the bartender made him something special with the ingredients on hand: gin, vermouth, bitters, some maraschino liqueur, and a hunk of lemon rind.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
