Snail Bites were a brand of snail treats that were on a commercial that SpongeBob saw at work. He then bought them and brought them home for Gary. Gary was instantly addicted to them, and he liked them so much that when he had eaten enough, SpongeBob made him do tricks for them. After Gary ate the whole box in one day, he started meowing like crazy for more. SpongeBob couldn't sleep, so he went to his local pet store and they were all sold out.
SpongeBob then went to every pet store in the ocean to look for more Snail Bites, but none had them, as they were all sold out. Because he could not find them in pet stores, SpongeBob went to the factory where snail bites were made to see if they had some. They did not, and SpongeBob explained to Gary that there were no more snail bites and that there never would be. Consequently, Gary didn't stop meowing. SpongeBob looked to Patrick for advice, and he told SpongeBob that he needed to say "no" to Gary. SpongeBob tried this and Gary stopped meowing immediately. At the end Patrick was eating the last known box of Snail Bites and, after they were all gone, started acting like Gary. They only appear in the episode "Treats!"
- Snail Bites are extreemely addictive to snails (And Patrick Star- their effects on other inhabitants of Bikini Bottom are unknown.) just like Krabby Patties are addictive to Bikini Bottomites.
- Snail Bites also seem to be filled with ingredients like catnip, a plant that attracts cats.
- After a snail tastes one or two, they'll ask the owner many times for more.
