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

Plankton's sign "Chum is Fum" attracts many customers. The customers cannot resist the name or the slogan and continue to eat chum nuggets despite their repulsive taste.
Customers hate the taste, but due to the decor of the
Chum Caverns, they cannot resist eating the chum nuggets.
Plankton tries to offer some chum nuggets to impatient customers waiting in line for the
Krusty Krab drive-thru, but after an old fish runs him over twice, Plankton says that his arm will fall off while advertising the 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.
