NEW YORK, June 19 — Are you a fan of Mexican food, especially tacos? Fear not! The taco emoji is coming to a phone near you.

Taco Bell yesterday announced that the Unicode Consortium has agreed to add the taco emoji to their lineup, and are waiting for Apple and Android to implement the change.

There has been a call for the taco emoji for a long time, and Taco Bell launched a Change.org petition in January that has been signed by over 30,000 people to include the emoji in the current list.

The taco emoji is one of 37 new emojis that will be added to Unicode 8.0, which will also include a burrito.
