  • Six of the food (?) emojis to be released this summer. The rest found below.
Emojipedia just released a list of potential new smartphone emoji to be released this summer. Ten of them, for sure, are food. They include:
  • Coconut
  • Broccoli
  • Pretzel
  • Raw steak (presumably to invite BBQ guests)
  • Sandwich
  • Bowl with spoon
  • Can of tomato soup
  • Dumpling (!!!)
  • Fortune cookies
  • Chinese take-out box
The eleventh emoji, which I am personally counting as "food" because I happen to have become addicted to them while visiting Mexico City, is the grasshopper — or, in Spanish, chapulines.

Wherever you stand on eating insects, these new releases will certainly add to your ability to say so much without saying anything. Which is really all we could ever hope for.
