Okay, we need you to stop what you’re doing and get serious here for a minute. We at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop have a question for you:
Do you like tacos?
That was rhetorical. Of course you like tacos.
Being a taco lover (we’re just guessing here), you’ve likely run into situations when you’ve wanted to share your passion for tacos via text message. You’re texting away and want to underscore your feelings with an emoji only to discover there’s no taco emoji. Which leads us to our real question: WHY?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have an emoji to talk to our friends about our love for tacos? Instead we have to spell it out like some sort of first-grade spelling bee. T-A-C-O, taco. Can you use that in a sentence? Sure: “There’s no taco emoji and we want to taco ’bout it.” Double word score.
Plus, you’re not gonna sit here and tell us that the taco emoji can’t easily replace one of the other emojis. Let’s do an inventory check real quick.
There are almost 50 food emojis that are at our fingertips daily. You’ve got your French fries, pizza and cheeseburger to start. That’s fair. We have no beef with those (well, maybe the burgers). But after that, things start to get a little unusual. Is that…is that a Bento box…and…and some sort of cake ball shish kabob? There are, like, three different kinds of ice cream. That’s just irresponsible.
Then there’s a whole page for just fruits and vegetables! Who made this? The guys who made the daily food pyramid? Pears and sweet potatoes? Eggplant!? Find us a person who needed the eggplant emoji to convey any sort of message and we’ll rename ourselves Fuzzy’s Eggplant Shop (no, we won’t).
You would think having a taco emoji would be a pretty simple task, especially since there are whole pages dedicated to colored shapes and different times on a clock.
In the meantime, while the battle for the taco emoji blazes forth, visit your nearest Fuzzy’s Taco Shop for the real deal.
