Taste Buds is an adorable collection of illustrations that shows which types of food go well together. These images give each food or drink a cartoon persona with faces, small stick arms and legs.

Designer and illustrator Philip Tseng created this collection based on common phrases that use food. Phrases such as "you are the cheese to my macaroni" are generic and Tseng wanted to give it some visual context. His illustrations are on display at the iam8bit gallery.

These feel-good foodpairings will have you thinking about how well you and your friends get along. Calling this collection 'Taste Buds' was a play on great friendship. After all, there is no better way to describe a friendship than comparing it to bacon and eggs, coffee and donuts or pizza and beer!
