USA Today article AUSTIN, Texas — Taco Bell announced Tuesday it is adding a new emoji to its menu, the first of its kind in the U.S. The new emoji, known as a taco, is designed to look like a taco but can also be used for other products, such as tacos, chips, juice and drinks.
The taco is a taco that is made with pork and is served with a side of cheese, as opposed to tacos made with chicken.
The name taco is pronounced “taco,” and the emoji is a reference to the phrase, “tacos, bacon, and cheese.”
The emoji was created by the Taco Bell team of people who work in a team.
“Taco Bell is an amazing company, and we are always working on new ways to connect with our fans and create even better experiences across all of our products,” said Doug Paz, Taco Bell president and CEO.
The first taco will be available in the United States in April 2019.
