Scooby Snacks (sometimes spelled Scooby Snax) are a food item used as a form of bribery for Scooby-Doo and Shaggy Rogers. Scooby Snacks seem to come in many different flavors, although all boxes are identical like bubblegum flavored Scooby Snacks,[1] Macadamia-flavored Scooby Snacks,[2] etc.

Physical appearance[]

Typically, they're either a small, brown biscuit or a small, brown, spherical wafer.

Powers and abilities[]

When Scooby would consume it as a puppy, he loved it so much that it would make him shoot off like a rocket.[3] The same effect was seen in Shaggy as well.


A Pup Named Scooby-Doo[]

Season one[]

When the gang was young there was a Scooby Snack factory in Coolsville which was troubled by a Cheese Monster.[4]

A large supply of Scooby Snacks was the big prize at the gang's favorite TV show, For Letter or Worse.[5]

Season three[]

Velma made an experiment on how microwaved Scooby Snacks cook in Space, and it was chosen to go on a shuttle from the Coolsville Space Center.[6]

What's New, Scooby-Doo?[]

Season two[]

Mystery Inc. visited the factory where the snacks were manufactured, in Munchville, Ohio.[7]

Scooby-Doo! and the Samurai Sword[]

They were found on sale in a vending machine in Japan.[8]

Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire[]

While in Australia, both Shaggy and Scooby played a video game where they have to collect the Scooby Snacks.

Be Cool, Scooby-Doo![]

After solving the case of the sorcerer in Sorcerer Snacks Scare, the CEO changes the name of the snack from Sorcerer Snacks to Scooby Snacks.


Appearances in other media[]

  • Scooby Snacks make a cameo appearance in the Dexter's Laboratory episode, Dexter's Lab: A Story, where Dexter takes a box, labeled "Scooby Snacks" with a picture of Scooby, out of the cabinet in the kitchen.
  • Scooby Snacks were featured in a MAD sketch where the creator of the product tells people why they market it to only one dog. According to him, "You tend to get caught up in the excitement."
  • Scooby Snacks also happened to show up in an episode of Teen Titans Go (Season 5 Episode 45, Cartoon Feud) in which the Scooby gang gets sucked into an alternate reality alongside the Titans by the villain Control Freak. Shaggy, Scooby, Beast Boy, and Cyborg all start to munch on the snacks. Remarkably, Cyborg remarks the flavor as "tangy".

Behind the scenes[]

Producer William Hanna had always imagined that a "Scooby Snack" would taste like some sort of a caramel-flavored cookie (the batter, however, is colored like brown sugar and similar in color to butterscotch),[citation needed] and he and Joseph Barbera had previously used the concept of a dog that goes wild for doggie treats in the Quick Draw McGraw series in 1959, with Quick Draw's dog, Snuffles.

Furthermore, in the "Mystery Inc. Yearbook" featurette on the Scooby-Doo's Creepiest Capers DVD, it is explained that a Scooby Snack tastes like a Butterscotch Morsel.
