There's an emoji for everything. Hearts, and this thing: 😃. And 🍆  which means...eggplant. But could there be an emoji for the Upper Peninsula's signature dish, the pasty?


The "pasty emoji" was shared recently on the You're not "Up North" until you cross the Mackinac Bridge!!! Facebook page. And they make a pretty good case for this being a pasty emoji.

Pretty solid, eh?

We thought so too. But internet spoilsports were quick to point out that  is a Chinese dumpling or potsticker.

But that folded over doughy emoji sure looks like a pasty to us. And to the Yoopers on Facebook too. Even though some said it might be an onion and not a dumpling, this comment sums it up: "Close enough, eh?"
