Chum Nuggets are small oval-shaped chunks of chum sold in the Chum Bucket. They resemble Chicken McNuggets from the real life fast food restaurant McDonald's, but they are made of chum, and not chicken, and are a parody of chicken nuggets. People eat them out of love for something, (the decor, or the slogan) but not necessarily for their strange taste. A machine tube dispenses chum into a small polystyrene foam container commonly used for takeout at restaurants. They appear in the episodes, "Chum Bucket Supreme," "Chum Caverns," and "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 over him twice, Plankton then says, "Chum Nuggets. Get them before... my arm falls off."
