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), 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.
Other uses of the term
