Chicago Cubs: Which popular food combination is “Bryzzo”?
By Erik Mauro
Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo have been Chicago Cubs teammates for three years now. In that time, they have become not only teammates, but best friends.
After reading this headline, many of you probably couldn’t wait to see the overall premise of this article. As Americans, we all love food. It’s well-documented. The Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant have developed a bromance, and the fans have even coined one of those witty Hollywood couple names in Bryzzo.
Even though the holidays are upon us, these comparisons are not about holiday treats, but food, in general. So, without further ado.
Peanut Butter & Jelly
Ah yes, a classic. Bland, but classic. That describes these two perfectly. Bryant, while beloved by fans, and many around baseball, has a really bland personality, and that’s not a bad thing. It makes sense that he would be the peanut butter, one of the most bland foods on earth. *Ducks incoming debris*

All in all, KB is an easily likable dude. He’s humble and doesn’t let his game get too big for his head. Rizzo, on the other hand, is a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky guy who likes to make quips and kind of be the joker of the team. Rizzo is definitely the jelly to Bryant’s peanut butter.
Pancakes & Bacon
These two foods are only together because they are breakfast foods. They are also both very delicious. The comparison is that these two food just kind of come together by happenstance.
Both breakfast foods, but not necessarily perceived to go together. Bryant and Rizzo just sort of came together, due to circumstances such as the big-league draft, and Rizzo being traded to the Cubs. Rizzo is the bigger guy of the two, so he would clearly be the pancakes.
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Another classic. These two foods are just natural together. Spaghetti, by itself is delicious already. Add in meatballs, and it becomes an elite meal. Sounds about right, yes? Bryant and Rizzo are just naturals.
They mesh well together and compliment one another. However, the difference is that without one another, they are both still elite. Two elite baseball players that just happen to be best friends, playing on the same team.

The Cubs get these two guys playing with each other for at least four more seasons, and that is music to Cubs’ fans ears. But, don’t let us be the judge though, which combination applies? Let us know in the comments below, or on social media!
