  • Fancy Lads Snack Cakes are commonly sold by most food vendors in the Mojave Wasteland.


  • Kings gang members will sometimes comically comment on the food saying, "I'd give anything for a Fancy Lad. Wait, I mean- you know what I mean!"
  • Sometimes, when attempting to speak with Veronica Santangelo, she will answer before the Courier speaks, saying, "A lifetime supply of Fancy Lad Snack Cakes, destruction of my enemies, and world peace. In that order.", apparently listing her three greatest wishes.
