LifeBot - Draft for SCP-3XXX: Snack Attack!
rating: 0+x

Greetings new assistant researcher, and congratulations on your promotion. Per policy changes made to the Foundation's standard operating procedures by the Ethics Committee on 9/1/2025, all Personnel above security clearance level 2 are required to read a copy of the cumulative containment log of SCP-XXXX.

- Jacob █. ██████, Head of the Ethics Committee.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All known instances of SCP-XXXX-A are to be stored in an airtight storage locker at site-12. Foundation Personnel handling any instance of SCP-XXXX-A must have received inoculation for minimum of Class-A Visual Cognitohazards as well as wear a Respirator equipped with a filter capable of filtering out Class-C Aerosolized inhalants. Civilians found to be under the effect of SCP-XXXX-A is to be taken to the nearest Foundation-Front medical facility to undergo rehabilitation and distributed Class-A Amnesics at the end of the rehabilitation.

The creator of SCP-XXXX-A, Samuel ███████ (Herefore referred to as SCP-XXXX) is currently at large. As SCP-XXXX is able to mass manufacture cognitohazardous effects with little effort, a widespread manhunt is currently in progress to capture SCP-XXXX and bring him into Foundation custody. It is unknown whether if SCP-XXXX-A has any anomalous properties.

Description: SCP-XXXX-A Refers to all instances of assorted snack food products produced by Guilt Free™ Snacks, a small business owned by Samuel ███████ based on █████████, Texas. The packaging on SCP-XXXX-A aggressively advertised the low fat and low calorie content of their food products, which would allegedly aid in weight loss. The packaging on every instance of SCP-XXXX-A is laced with mild visual cognitohazards. The said pictograms convince the viewer of the truthfulness of Guilt Free™ Snacks' advertising as well as increase the perceived salience of the snack food. Furthermore, the Cognitohazardous triggers built into SCP-XXXX-A's packaging are designed so that anyone with a cognitohazard resistance index of above 721 are less likely to notice2 the product.

The combination of these effects allowed SCP-XXXX to target a large enough chunk of the population to keep his business profitable, but evade detection from law enforcement/Foundation personnel until now.

All instances of SCP-XXXX-A contain no actual food products. The inner lining of the packaging contains another set of cognitohazardous pictures which in conjunction with the cognitohazardous triggers printed onto the packaging, creates a powerful visual, olfactory, gustatory, and tactile hallucination which simulates the existence of actual snack foods inside the packaging.

Due to these properties, virtually everyone exposed to SCP-XXXX-A becomes convinced that instances of SCP-XXXX-A are just another low-calorie package of snack foods.

The resulting caloric deficit does indeed result in weight loss in consumers of SCP-XXXX-A, but along with malnutrition and other expected results of prolonged periods of caloric deficit.

Discovery: On 3/5/2022, The ████ County Police Department received a frantic call from Mr. Mandel Johnson3, who reported an "[e]ntire town full rail-thin crazies", while he was traveling through Texas for a business meeting.

Members of MTF Iota-10 (Damn Feds)4 intercepted the call and dispatched several agents to the town of █████████, Texas. Agent Cho, who had received inoculation against Class-B Cognitohazards prior to this mission recognized the anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX-A and retrieved samples of SCP-XXXX-A for the Cognitohazard Research Department for further study.

MTF Eta-10 (See No Evil)5 swiftly conducted a raid on the Headquarters of the Guilt Free™ Snacks. As a result of the raid, the Foundation was able to seize all the assets owned by SCP-XXXX present in the building. However, SCP-XXXX was able to evade capture. Further investigations show that most of SCP-XXXX's family members are deceased, save for a younger sibling (female) who is currently hospitalized in a local institution, undergoing treatments for a rare form of leukemia.

Memo from Craig Brownstone, Chief of Security at Site-12:

As far as I can tell from the intel we currently have, SCP-XXXX was working alone. I've set a priority order for a search and capture of SCP-XXXX-A. Unlike past fugitives with connections to GoIs, we ought to be able to capture SCP-XXXX-A soon.

Class-A Amnestics, as well as retroactive inoculation against memetic agents were administered to the local populace to undo the damage SCP-XXXX had caused. Foundation Researchers concluded that no long-lasting side effects are to be expected from SCP-XXXX-A instances.

Addendum XXXX.1: How SCP-XXXX acquired extensive knowledge of memetics/cognitohazards is unknown. SCP-XXXX displays competent knowledge in biochemistry and cognitohazards. Background Investigations revealed that PoI-2254 graduated with a bachelor's degree in Neuroscience at a local University.
