    "McDonalds brand is reliability."
    As a McDonalds employee can i just ask:
    Does a half cooked chicken nugget, flies with hair, and a bitten off of chicken tender sound reliable to you?

    Problem with this.
    Plankton and Mr Krabs actually made the formula together, so there is in fact a secret to the Krabby Patty. The entire reason that Plankton's place is called the 'Chum Bucket' is because he got a part of the recipe.

    1) The stuff written on the recipe was probably just a way to hide it from the audience. Have you ever seen a newspaper in a cartoon covered in squiggles? It's not as if those squiggles are actually there or anything.
    2) Squidward hated the Krabby Patty and had a pessimistic view of the product. By that logic, his psychological state put him at a disposition to dislike the Krabby Patty, and its taste seemed to overwhelm that.
    3) Continuity is a point of contention in the Spongebob fanbase. The variance in how the burger is put together may be from changes in continuity, or just plain animation errors.
    4) The Krabby Patty secret formula or recipe exists to be mysterious. In some media, you can find items or whatnot that are meant to be unknowable (in spite of also being a symbol of good). Thus, while a formula probably does exist, the show has always been specifically designed so that speculation is futile (hence continuity changes).
