We are now one step closer to taco emoji heaven, you guys. 

Unicode has released a list of all 67 emojis that have been accepted as candidates by the UTC (Unicode Technical Committee). And not only that, we have prototypes of them, too!

The UTC still has to make decisions on which ones will be officially added to the Unicode Standard and thus, your phone, but we're still excited at the prospect of getting over 60 new ways to not actually communicate with people.

These emojis were all announced earlier this year, but now we have photos of all 67 possible candidates. The highly-anticipated taco emoji, selfie emoji and bacon emoji are all on the list, but we'd like to talk about a few additions that will up your sexting game.

The cucumber emoji, for one, is a new addition that you can mix in with the good ol' eggplant emoji. There's also a baguette emoji so now we're convinced the minds behind these emojis are through with being subtle. No one is actually going to use that to talk about bread, right? We know that, you know that and Unicode almost definitely knows that.

Plus, the emoji of the duck is certainly something you could fit into your sexting schedule, because we all have fallen victim to the iPhone "duck" autocorrecting.

Other emojis we are beyond thrilled to see take shape are the selfie emoji, the shrug emoji that we will wear out within a week because that's how we want to respond to almost every text and that third place medal emoji so we can use that when our friends totally fail over text. Instead of saying "you tried," we can just send them that bronze medal.

And finally, we know we'll be seeing that black heart emoji in our "recently used" section every single day because even though you're dead inside, doesn't mean you don't deserve to express yourself via emoji.

Here are examples of the rest of the emojis, but keep in mind these could change between now and the anticipated release day in June 2016:

And the award for "Emoji We Weren't Expecting to Love So Much But Now Don't Know How We'll Survive Without It Until Next Year" goes to...the cartwheel emoji! We can't pinpoint the exact reason why, but we are really into that one.

Apparently Kate Winslet's kids won't get to see the new emojis, because she doesn't let them have smart devices!
