You can finally express yourself via the medium of food pictures you actually need to use. These are the new emojis that will dominate your messages in 2016 …

Crying out for an avocado emoji to express your love for guacamole? Stuck for ways to show your affection for a bacon sarnie?


Fear not, as a whole new batch of emojis are coming.


In what can only be described as a 'first world problem', the Unicode Consortium – the force that standardises software data, including emojis, across all platforms – has promised the world that 38 new images will hit the web in 2016.


Brace yourself, because we can reveal that the list includes the highly anticipated bacon and avocado emojis. 


According to Yahoo, they will be available from June next year, although this has not been officially confirmed.

Here’s what will dominate the web (and your texts) in 2016:


1. Avocado

2. Bacon


3. Croissant


4. Cucumber


5. Potato


6. Carrot


7. Clinking glasses


Oh, and a nauseated face to text someone when you’ve stuffed yourself with a few too many biscuits … again.
