Amoeba Treats are a brand of amoeba food that appear in the episode "Spot Returns."

Description

They are pet treats that are made for amoebas and come in a brown paper bag that depicts the word "amoeba" in red text and the word "treats" in bluish-purple text in a red outline. Below the text is an illustration of the food inside, which are white bone-shaped treats.

Role in episode

After Plankton examines his pet amoeba, Spot, with an X-ray, he is shocked to find out that Spot is pregnant, assuming he was a boy. Karen points out that it does not matter since the provision of food-rich environments causes amoebas to reproduce. The scene then pans to all of the food Plankton has been feeding to Spot, one of the items being the Amoeba Treats.

Towards the end of the episode, after Plankton's failed attempt to use Spot's children to gain possession of the secret formula, SpongeBob pours a bag of Amoeba Treats on Plankton as revenge for trapping him in a cage, which attracts several of the children and increases their size.
