Your emoji keyboard is about to become a whole lot tastier.
That doesn’t mean these new emoji will land on iOS and Android immediately since those companies maintain their own set of emoji. But it’s a good sign the symbols will be included in a future update. The previous update, Unicode 7.0, included racially diverse faces, which took almost a year before they appeared on Apple devices.
The inclusion of the taco emoji is a victory for Taco Bell. The digitally attuned brand has been campaigning hard since last November with a Change.org petition, which racked up 33,000 signatures. The fast-food company also raffled off chic “Taco Emoji” shirts on its Twitter account.
Needless to say, Taco Bell was excited about the news:
@unicode WHAT? WHEN?

As was the internet:
Unicode 8.0 will feature the taco emoji. This is the most excited I have been in a long time!

With results like that, it’s only a matter of time that another brand — say, Doritos — petitions for their own emoji.
