Chum Nuggets are a type of chum sold in the Chum Bucket. They appear in the episodes, "Chum Bucket Supreme," "Chum Caverns," and "Drive Thru."


They are small oval-shaped chunks of chum and are a parody of chicken nuggets. They resemble McDonald's Chicken McNuggets, but are made of chum instead of chicken. People eat them out of love for something (the decor or the slogan), but not necessarily for their strange taste. A machine tube dispenses the chum into a small polystyrene foam container commonly used for takeout at restaurants.

Role in series

"Chum Bucket Supreme"

Plankton's sign "Chum is Fum" attracted a lot of customers. As in Chum Caverns, people couldn't resist the name of the slogan, and continued to eat chum nuggets despite their repulsive taste.

"Chum Caverns"

People hated the taste, but due to the decor of the Chum Caverns, they couldn't resist spending money and eating the chum nuggets.

"Drive Thru"

Plankton offers some chum nuggets to impatient costumers waiting in line for the Krusty Krab drive thru, but after an old fish runs him over twice, Plankton says "Chum Nuggets. Get them before... my arm falls off."


  • SpongeBob orders chum nuggets for Patrick while he is at the Chum Caverns. However, Patrick ate his chum nuggets because he was hungry.
