If you've ever watched SpongeBob Squarepants, then you know that Plankton has always wondered what the secret ingredient in a Krabby Patty is. Like Plankton, we too have always wondered but now that we might know, we really wish we didn't.

Check out what this Twitter user theorizes the secret ingredient actually is.

The Krusty Krab features a variety of different items on their menu including Coral Bits, Kelp Rings, KelpShakes and of course, Krabby Patties. Notice something similiar about all those different items? Twitter user @Yondaliis did, pointing out that every item features the name of their key ingredient.

Wait a second.. That can't possibly mean.. Yeah. That's right. The secret ingredient of the Krabby Patty is crab meat.

Now Yondaliis makes sure to point out that Mr. Krabs doesn't use his own meat but then makes us all realize the startling realization that Mr. Krabs is the only crab in Bikini Bottom..

Wait.. So you're telling us that Mr. Krab has killed a bunch of crabs for his delicious Krabby Patties?! Who knows?! There's no way Spongebob knows, right? Is it possible behind that innocent smiling sponge face is a fry cook that's seen way too much?

Twitter user @lowwkey_matt also shows us how similiar the Krusty Krab looks to an actual crab trap.

What do you think? Is crab meat the secret ingredient in Krabby Patties or are we just freaking out over nothing? Let us know in the comments!
