Since our last emoji update where there were 67 emojis that might be joining our iPhone keyboards, there鈥檝e been 12 new additions. The brings the total number to a whopping 79 new emoji contestants to have hit the Internet. Frankly, we鈥檙e totally into all of them! The collection from Unicode Technical Committee repeats a few old contenders but definitely has more hits than misses, which makes it difficult to choose a favorite.

New submissions include dumpling, chopsticks, egg, kiwi, peanut, pancakes (how is that not already a thing?), Chinese take out box and glass of milk for food. There鈥檚 gorilla, squid and shrimp for animals. Also, let鈥檚 not forget the all-important raising one eyebrow face.

Just remember to keep in mind, the images here are only mockups, so there鈥檚 no telling what the final versions are going to look like 鈥 or if these candidates will even make the cut at all. These options, or whichever ones make the cut, won鈥檛 be coming to phones or social media until 2017 which seems like way too long to have to wait for the dumpling emoji 鈥 but patience is a virtue.
