The fact that library of emoji characters doesn’t include tacos is serious business. So much so that Xoxco developed an app for the single purpose of texting images of tacos.

Again, it is only a candidate and not guaranteed—but if we don’t get that taco emoji a riot may be in order.
Other possible food emoji in the release include:
