Taco Bell has created a petition on Change.org to create a taco emoji.

The next time you’re craving a taco, Taco Bell wants you to text a taco emoji. They want it so badly, the Irvine-based fast food chain created a Change.org petition late last year to collect signatures for the emoji.

The petition is a letter to the Unicode Consortium, a nonprofit responsible for regulating computer text, including emojis. The organization announced that it accepted 37 new emoji character candidates to be released in 2015. The taco is one of them.

“Why do pizza and hamburger lovers get an emoji but taco lovers don’t?” asked Taco Bell on its Change.org page. “Here’s a better question: Why do we need four different types of mailboxes? Or 25 different types of clocks? Or a VCR tape and floppy disk emoji? No one even uses those things anymore.”

Well, Taco Bell has a point. And its fans seem to agree. The petition currently has 21,310 signatures and needs 3,690 to meet its goal.
