It's World Emoji Day ๐Ÿ“…

Written by Terra's Kitchen | Mon, Jul 17, '17

In honor of World Emoji Day, we decided to discuss our favorite emojis - food emojis! Half the fun of a meal is posting a picture of it with a cute caption. Weโ€™re all familiar with that feeling of achievement when you find a bunch of emojis that perfectly describe your meal!  ๐Ÿ™Œ

If you're anything like us, you've probably wondered what the most popular food emojis are.  SwiftKey actually did a study that revealed these as the top 10 food emojis that are used in the US:

  1.     Pizza โ€“ ๐Ÿ•
  2.    Coffee โ€“ โ˜•
  3.    Poultry leg โ€“ ๐Ÿ—
  4.    Cherries โ€“ ๐Ÿ’
  5.    Slice of cake โ€“ ๐Ÿฐ
  6.    Hamburger โ€“ ๐Ÿ”
  7.    Dougnut โ€“ ๐Ÿฉ
  8.    Ice cream cone โ€“ ๐Ÿฆ
  9.    Strawberry โ€“ ๐Ÿ“
  10.    Lollipop โ€“ ๐Ÿญ

Since our love for food is something that never stops growing, Emoji has been looking out for us by continuing to add new ones that have us rushing to our fridges โ€“ or Instagram feeds. The latest food emojis, released a few months ago, include stuffed flatbread, paella, cucumber, croissant, pancakes, potato, kiwi, salad, carrot, and egg.


If that isn't exciting enough, here are some new food emojis that are being released this summer:
