While primarily, TYPE 3 or TYPE 4 when applied to a future MILK emoji, could denote “coffee with milk”, I'd prefer it could be WHOLE SUGAR MILK. There are two reasons to that. 1ˢᵗ, nutritionists unanimously warn us that a mix of coffee and milk is harmful. 2ⁿᵈ, the mineral content of whole sugar makes it a balanced food by contrast with the depleted sugar (whether this be refined or not, with or without caramel).

I would like so. TYPE 5: Strawberry milk

Asmus already told us that there'll be no soy beans emoji, by lack of iconicity. However, could there be a generic BEANS emoji along with the on-coming MILK emoji? A two-emoji sequence MILK, BEANS or BEANS, MILK would then denote tonyu.
