AR Stickers: Foodmoji

Android Police coverage: Foodmoji and Text AR Stickers get their own Play Store listing [APK Download]

Google originally released their AR Stickers app with a bunch of different sticker packs contained inside. But it would seem the bloat was too much, so some of those packs have been taken out and released as their own apps, though you will still need the original AR Stickers app to use them. AR Stickers: Foodmoji contains a plethora of augmented reality anthropomorphic food-themed stickers, which should add a bunch of goofy flavor to your photos should you feel inclined to use them.
