Barbecue sauce provides just the right dollop of tangy sweetness to finish just about any grilled meat. You’ll find loads of supermarket options that run the gamut from spicy to sweet, fruity, boozy and more. The good ones provide a perfectly balanced, complex blend of salt, spice and sweetness. A host of issues afflict the bad ones, which can be wickedly sour, syrupy sweet or laced with so much fake smoke flavoring you can’t rinse the taste from your mouth.
Cookies and ice cream are two irresistible treats. Sandwich them together and it’s sheer delight — or it can be. The best ice cream sandwiches are made with silky, flavor-dense ice cream that’s tucked between tender, rich cookies that pair perfectly with the ice cream, allowing the flavors of both to shine. Unfortunately, many of the options from the supermarket freezer case fall short. The cookies are flavorless, or so mushy they stick to your fingers.
American-style breakfast sausages are a tasty side to any morning feast. Whether you find these heat-and-eat sausages near the hot dogs or in the freezer section, fully-cooked breakfast sausage is typically made with pork, although there are beef, turkey, chicken and other protein options available. Some are flavored with maple or apple; others hit the more savory notes of sage, smoke and pepper. The best are juicy, well balanced bites with a pinch of sweetness and just the right hint of herbs.
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".
