I think the secret formula is crabs because there is no other crabs in sponge bob and the reason it’s called Krabby patty

Conspiracy theory : Mr Krabs abducted Matpat and made him create this video to make plankton give up his quest for the secret formula therefore keeping it safe forever

Ah yes, cannibalism. 😔 Krabby patties are made out of crab flesh. I thought we all knew this. Mr. Crabs restaurant is literally a crab trap, and in one episode, when Mr crabs tries a krabby patty for the first time, he literally says, 'so that's what I taste like.'

I myself am a big fan of the theory that the secret ingredient is crab. That's why there aren't any other crabs in bikini bottom and why the crusty crab is formed like a crab trap. Also Mr. crabs says "so that's what I taste like" after trying a CRABBY patty for the first time

Have you ever wondered why Mr. Crabs in the only crab in Bakini Bottom? That's probably because he uses crabs in his burgers without telling Spongebob that they are actually crabs... You are welcome for the video content.

To bad the origin story is plankton and mr krabs made the formula together and then krabs took it. So why would plankton try to steal nothing?

I thought the secret ingredient was crab. Mr. Krabs may have been ashamed to have basically been a cannibal.

Love how nobody is mentioning that the show doesn't have an actual *canon*, so to speak, and if there is, nobody has deciphered it as of yet. This is likely in part due to the constantly changing staff and creative team. The only time where the show was relatively consistent was 1999-2004, seasons 1-3 and The Spongebob Squarepants Movie. The only real way to see what the secret formula is is to *only* use this period, and it can be confirmed that there is an actual secret formula because Plankton actually gets it in the film, and he becomes successful. The film resolves him finally getting the formula by literally sending him to life in prison for enslaving the town with mind control devices. This also means that if there is a true canon to the show, it ends with the film (though that's beside the point). So there is a secret formula, and it the only two individuals who know what it is are Spongebob and Mr. Krabs (at least as revealed in this canon, as there obviously was someone before Spongebob who worked as the fry cook as evidenced by the pilot episode literally being his job interview). Squidward obviously doesn't know it because he doesn't work as the cook or food-prepper, and usually when he's made to cook (outside of one episode in a gag) it's shown that he's completely incompetent at cooking and is only behind the grill because nobody else can be (it's implied that he's at least better at cooking than Mr. Krabs). Once Plankton finds out, he's eventually removed from the equation.

*3:00** Maybe those were just add-ons and maybe Mr. Krabs thinks Spongebob is adding the secret sauce but, he really isn't. Maybe the patties are just ordinary meat, well, sea meat like there are underwater cows and animals like that. Another thing is that Ketchup and Secret Sauce are the same..?* The third thing could be it as I believe if you make people think something enough, there brains may trick them into blaming it. Example: Give someone Coke (not the drug, you freak) a couple times, convince them it's alcohol and they'll prolly get drunk.

what about the episode plankton dresses up as Spongebob and asks Mr krabs what the formula is again. Mr Krabs tells him but is drowned out by noise.
