Where does 🥐 - croissant emoji come from?

See Next Word

If you’ve just finally mastered the correct pronunciation of croissant, we’ve got one more word that will really make you sound fancy. A croissant is a Viennoiserie pastry, with Viennoiserie meaning “things of Vienna.”

It’s not a French invention, as many think, but was born in Vienna, Austria, with its ancestor, the simple kipferi roll, going back to the 13th century. The croissant is, however, a staple of the French breakfast.

The croissant emoji was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016, along with the baguette, pancake, and bacon emoji. Life is good.


Who uses 🥐 - croissant emoji ?

The croissant emoji is frequently used in social-media posts about the universally beloved pastry, and in posts about baking and desserts in a more general sense.

It’s also popular when referring to France, and things that are French, and even to topics like breakfast in general as well as “foodie” events.
