Gone are the days when we texted in full sentences or words. These days, emojis do all the talking for you. Whether you’re asking to borrow some money or you’re hungry and you’re sending out an SOS, emojis are the way to go. It takes less time to type out the words and is also easier to understand. Not everyone can speak emoji, though, but that doesn’t stop them from trying.
Last year, as part of an iOS update, iPhone users were gifted with a whole bunch of new emojis ranging from food to hand actions to animals and so much more. And now, there’s another emoji update coming and this time, there’s more food added to the menu.
The Unicode Consortium has released a proposal for 51 new emoji, 14 of which fall in the realm of food and beverage.
On the list, you’ll find favourites like Pie, Pretzel, Sandwich, Coconut, Salt shaker, Broccoli and even hummus! How anybody will be able to understand that something is hummus through an emoji is unknown, but we’ll see how that pans out once the emojis have been released. People are still waiting on a bacon and avocado emoji, but we’ve got to start somewhere.
Here are the other emoji that are on the list: Bagel, Cup with straw, Cereal, Canned goods, Cabbage, Lettuce and more!
