Drumroll 🥁 please…. Without further ado your next Boolean Scenario: 


Each season Starbucks ☕ comes out with a seasonal menu featuring new drinks. Below you will find the Boolean used to pull in news mentions of their “Winter Feels Menu”. Instead of creating a new search can you help the Starbucks marketing team adjust the current search to pull in mentions of their new spring menu


Current Season Boolean Search: 

((infotype:”news”) AND (Starbucks AND (“Winter Menu” OR “Winter Feels Menu”) 


What needs to be updated: 

  • The team would like to view social mentions in addition to news mentions. 
  • The new menu can be referred to as “Spring Menu” or “Cue Spring Mood”. 
  • The team is looking for prominent mentions of Starbucks. For example: 
    • Starbucks should be mentioned in the first paragraph
    • Starbucks should be mentioned within 10 words of the seasonal menu 


How would you update the boolean? Don’t forget you can utilize the resources in the Boolean Academy Wizards Group. Reply with your boolean string suggestion on this thread.


Note: I will share the recommended Boolean with you via Private Message after your entry. 

Who’s ready to compete? 💪

Good luck!
