The can label is red, except for the top part of it, which is white. The word "SLIMYCAN" is printed on the white section in green, and "SNAIL FOOD" is printed on the red section in blue, with the words stacked.
In "Gary's New Toy," when SpongeBob can't find Gary, he grabs the Slimycan Snail Food out of the top cabinet of his kitchen to feed him, but Gary is too busy playing with his new red ball.
In its second appearance in "SpongeBob You're Fired," a depressed SpongeBob comes home from work after Mr. Krabs fires him over a nickel. SpongeBob then proceeds to feed Gary this snail food, unenthusiastically stating that he only feeds him now as a result of losing his job.
- It is revealed that this is Gary's favorite snail food.
