Huge news for the bean hive. The official governing body of emoji linguistics, also known as the Unicode Consortium, has at long last introduced a beans emoji. This has been a highly anticipated possibility since July, when beans were announced as one of the, uh, 15th most anticipated emojis at the World Emoji Awards.
Now, you may be asking, “Where were you last spring when I was cooking nothing but beans?” (Nowhere to be seen.) The news was, regardless, met with mostly celebration from the bean brigade, who finally have a way to express that they are eating rajma chawal or a full English breakfast. And if you really want to explain how much you love beans? All you’ve got to do is combine the new bean emoji with the new face-melting emoji.
