Coral Bits are a side dish sold at the Krusty Krab. Next to the Krabby Patty, the Coral Bits are the most frequently mentioned product, and perhaps the second most popular. The dish consists of small bits of pink corals, served in a paper food tray. There is also a chili variation of the product. In the episode "Clams," Sandals bought Coral Bits with a one-dollar bill, which was later Mr. Krabs' one millionth dollar. In "Plankton's Army,", a robot bought Chili Coral Bits. In the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V," Coral Bits can be bought in either small, medium or large size. In the episode "Le Big Switch," Dale bought two double Krabby Patties and Coral Bits and Squidward stole them from Dale. An extra 25 cents is charged for an upgraded size. The price of Coral Bits varies from episodes. In other episodes, Coral Bits are served in only one size. Coral Bits are packaged in a brown paper bag, as seen in the episode "Plankton's Army." They seem to resemble chicken nuggets or bits.
It was revealed in the episode "Patrick-Man!" that the recipe for coral bits is:
4 cups of coral
1 teaspoon of salt
Mix them together
The price of the Coral Bits has varied in different episodes:
