Chopsticks, pretzels and avocados, emojified

Hosted by

Last week, our supervising producer Abbie Fentress Swanson attended Emojicon in San Francisco, a three-day conference devoted in its entirety to emoji. The word "emoji' means "picture characters" in Japanese and is the Unicode language of 1,800 winky face, fist bump and cartoon food pics that is baked into our cell phones and computers. Not a day goes by that we don't throw a burrito, glass of beer or fried chicken emoji into a text or Instagram post, and we know we're not alone. Find out which new foods could be coming soon to the emoji set in Abbie's report on the Good Food blog.
