Video: Here are picture perfect recreations of the food emojis we all love to drop in our text messages. You know the ones: the pizza slice, the taco, the foamy beer, the doughnut. Bon Appetit used a food stylist to recreate these popular emojis, and it's crazy how exacting their methods can be. To get the right look for the food, they don't actually use food stuff.

Something we can all agree on: emojis are endless amounts of fun. I mean, when you emoji-fy something in real life — like an eggplant, for example — the emoji suddenly carries so much more meaning than the original object ever did. It's a whole new language. Even more fun, is pairing the emoji with its real life counterpart back again, like using the emoji list as a treasure map of things that need to be found IRL.
