Designer and illustrator Philip Tseng recently completed his adorable food pairs series, Taste Buds.
He created the series for his first gallery show at iam8bit, where the theme was "duos."
Would it be cereal and milk?
Or maybe pizza and beer?

Which Adorable Food Pair Are You And Your Best Friend?
You two are clearly different, and you can't be compared. But your differences are what make your friendship great. Any way you slice it, you get each other.
Classic combo. Your friendship is vintage and reliable, like the sunrise. You value substance over style. And even when things get messy, you're still good.
The standard. Your friendship is warm and satisfying. You're a combo that always hits the spot. You also can share a very small space together while maintaining your distinct flavors.
One of you is sweet while the other is savory. That's the way it's always been — you both bring great individuality to table. You value maturity and strength.
You complement each other — when one of you is cool, the other is warm, or at least room temperature. When one of you is crisp, the other is spicy. One is salty and the other sweet. This is why you are meant to be together.
Your friendship is fun and sweet. Over the years your personalities have started to meld — it's hard to remember who started the latest inside joke, because it could have been either one of you.
A perfect balance of strength and flavor. When one of you is too bitter, the other brings the sweetness. When one is lethargic, the other brings the energy. Every morning you look forward to seeing each other.
You two have this friendship routine down. You both know your roles and you play them well. You value humility and unselfishness. But you also both like to make sure you get the last word in, which is why you talk forever.
Natural companions. You just get each other. You can't explain it, but you feel better when you're together.
You simply can't be apart — it's impossible to separate you, because you've blended together into one delicious friendship. You value warmth and comfort.
Consistency. That's what you two value. Each time you see each other, you know exactly what you're going to get. You value steadiness and reliability.
So sweet. Your friendship is cool, refreshing, and fun. When you're both in need of relief, your conversation provides the perfect blend of texture and flavor.
You complement each other perfectly and everyone knows it! When one is smooth, the other is sweet. Your friendship is good any hour of the day or night.
An essential pair. Yours is a friendship with deep roots, and since you've met, you've grown so much.
A superb combination. One of you is sweet while the other is savory — and you two leave a lasting impression on everyone who meets you.
Good times. You two like to take it easy, and your friendship has seen many a late night. You're not trying to impress anybody — you just like to be together.
Nonstop entertainment. You know you'll have fun together because you two make anything fun. Hours will go by in the blink of an eye when you are together.
You two value substance. Your friendship is deeply satisfying, and your strong differences are an ideal balance.
When one of you is alone, everyone asks where the other is. That's how close you are — you can't be separated. Your friendship is a true classic.
This is a relationship characterized by strength — your time together feels very consequential. This friendship takes up quite a bit of space on your plate, but you're OK with that — it's worth it.
