However, a new set of food emojis from The Unicode Consortium, the body that approves international software standards for characters and letters, should go some way to sating the appetites of emoji-hungry foodies. Though a Japanese water cake emoji doesn’t look in the offing any time soon – sorry, everyone – Unicode 9, which contains 72 new emojis available from 21 June, does have breakfast well covered, with bacon, egg, croissant, pancakes and, of course, avocado emojis.
Late Night Snacks
Additional food emojis include paella, cucumber, kiwi fruit and carrot. There are also four varieties of stuffed flatbread emoji for those late night snacks of the doner kebab/falafel variety. The drooling face emoji may come in handy too.
