A true language of its own...

A few years ago it would have been totally acceptable to (instant) message people without including any emojis. Today it’s almost frowned upon and making use of (read: over-using) emojis are a must!

I once overheard someone say that they dislike chatting to people who send messages without emojis and I bet that this is something that many of us can relate to. Emojis give such great context and personality to messages.

Emojis have become so popular that an agency in the UK recently offered to pay someone for translating emojis. Yes, an actual emoji translator job!

At Food24 we love emojis and we couldn’t be more excited each time we hear that another food item is added to the rapidly growing list. With the most recent IOS update a carrot, croissant, stack of pancakes, avocado and more was added.

To celebrate and give thanks to the emoji gods we’ve compiled a round-up of food emoji inspired eats!
