    Yeah but what about when squidward says in the show an episode later with a fake formula how he says Mr krabs is hiding the real thing under his floor boards in his house? Or the fact every artist uses gibberish for text that goes by to fast to read? Or even the FIRST movie? When plankton steals the formula and uses it? Too many variables is the problem :/

    I think krabby patties are made out of crabs. Ever noticed how Mr Krabs is the only crab in bikini bottom, or the only one that’s shown in the show? (Not including flashbacks) just something to think about

    I read somewhere that it was possibly crab meat, because the Krusty Krab is designed as a tool to catch crabs. The only crabs that show up in the show are of Mr. Krabs family or are outside the Bikini Bottom. Also while not a crab, Larry the Lobster mentions that protein shakes saved his life.

    The secret is not the formula but the chef. That's why when spongebob is fired episode, Mr.krabs business was going down hill until spongebob came back and everything goes back to normal.

  • Roosco Studios And pugtaco

    Maybe crabs. Mr crabs is the only crab in bikini bottom. And he would definitely not want to look like a cannibal.
    Or it’s cocaine.

    2 things that proves the ingredients exist:
    1: On the movie Plankton starts making the Krabby Patties if there wasn't a recipe he would of been like what?!?!?! But instead he just makes the patties.
    2: Most importantly..on an Episode Squidward guesses Mr Krabs has the secret formula at home under his mattress then Mr Krab panics and runs home....:p on that same episode he says when Plankton steals the recipe hahaha he thought it was the real formula due to the fact Plankton thought he was the secret ingredient lol.

  • Ultra Instinct Shagy

    Um, I mean there literally is an episode where the formula is made.

    Concerning the commercial ingredient contradiction, you're too busy looking at the forest and not paying attention to the trees, MatPat.
    Like you said, presentation is key and Mr. Krabs is a cheapskate businessman who's upselling his goods. The "undersea veggies" are literally just veggies that are currently underwater and his secret sauce IS Mustard and Ketchup. Same recipe, different presentation.

    The Krabby Patty is made out of crabs/Krabs because its already in the name KRABBY patty

  • Jessy Finley
    Jessy Finley 5 days ago

    What about this everything food-wise in the show is what it's called so by that logic a Krabby Patty will be made from crab which also explains why Squidward goes crazy in the vault he's a squid it has never been able to taste crab because there's not very much around and crab is a major food source for octopus and squid

  • Alyia Aitken
    Alyia Aitken 5 days ago +1

    I think it's beef because when the secret ingredient is delivered by HELICOPTER and is so heavily protected it would make sense if it came from above and that's why plankton can't figure it out HE DOESNT KNOW IT EXISTS and why it's so good everyone has had the boring under the sea-food but no {fish} knows that it exists and why would mr. Krabs hide it from everyone?
    Wow I just made a whole theory

  • Matt Beckley
    Matt Beckley 5 days ago

    no mattt the reason there is no formula is to cover up the fact that mr.krabs has been feeding fish to his customers

    Didnt go over the fact that plankton was there when the formula was made and Mr.krabs stole it and left plankton behind to start the krusty krab

    Why not Plankkton buy the Krabby Patty meet from the same company as Mr. Krabs does. Because we all know that Mr. krABS is to cheap to actually buy ingredients for his own Formula

  • Angel Borson
    Angel Borson 7 days ago

    theory: spongebob himself is the secret formula because spongebob is the one making all the great krabby patties. yeah, squidward can work the grill, but the mob wants spongey boi. you know?

  • PeterTheRock3
    PeterTheRock3 7 days ago

  • joseph lach
    joseph lach 7 days ago

    Wait one second. Plankton stole the formula in the movie, and started making Krabby Patties. Check Mate. Edit: But also, Plankton missed out on the second secret ingredient that only Spongebob can provide: Love
