    Community Answer
    Go into the emoji keyboard on any app that supports writing or text. There will be words or small icons along the top or bottom, or both, depending on your device. Either scroll past the sections until you get to “food and drink,” or click on the small icon of a burger and drink along the bottom. Scroll along the food until you find a biscuit you like. There's a chocolate chip emoji near the lollipop.
    Thanks!
