Chum nuggets are a chum food item sold by the Chum Bucket. They first appear in the episode "Chum Bucket Supreme." They are a parody of chicken nuggets.


"Chum Caverns"

They are small, oval-shaped chunks of chum that resemble chicken nuggets. A gray machine tube dispenses the chum into a small styrofoam container, which is commonly used for takeout at restaurants.

"Drive Thru"

They are served in a brown box with a handle. Unlike the one in "Chum Caverns," they do not resemble chicken nuggets, rather it is fish organs combined with chum slop.

Customers hate the taste, but due to the decor of the Chum Caverns, they cannot resist eating the chum nuggets.

Plankton is seen advertising chum nuggets on the Krusty Krab television as Mr. Krabs suspects his hidden motive behind his lack of trying to steal the formula lately.
