According to the creator of Spongebob Squarepants, Steve Hillenburg, Krabby Patties do not contain meat.
After speaking to Spongebob producer, Vincent Waller, CinemaBlend reported in 2017 that he said: “The one thing I can tell you that Steve Hillenburg has let slip is there is absolutely no meat in the Krabby Patty. There is no animal product in there.”
One Tumblr user said that Burger King likened the Krabby Patty to its ‘all plant burger’ which suggests, even more so, that the Krabby Patty is vegan.
