Ice cold Nuka-Cola is a variant of Nuka-Cola and a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Nuka-Cola
Nuka-Cola entered the beverage market in 2044, with the invention of the soft drink by John-Caleb Bradberton after two years of experimentation. Though strictly unhealthy (containing 120% of the recommended daily allowance of sugar), it took the United States market by storm and within a year it could be purchased nationwide. Its popularity rapidly increased and within several years it was the most popular beverage across the globe.[1][2]

The unique taste of Nuka-Cola is the result of a combination of seventeen fruit essences, balanced to enhance the classic cola flavor.[3][4] The balance is precarious and minute adjustments can affect it severely. Such was the case when the freshly launched Nuka-Cola was reformulated in response to the Great Passion Fruit Famine of 2044 and consumers noticed the change in flavor.[5]

Nuka-Cola contains excessive amounts of caffeine and 120% of the recommended daily value of sugar, making it decisively unhealthy for extended consumption.[6] To counter the negative image, it was marketed as being fortified with vitamins, minerals, and "health tonics."[7] Intensive consumption can cause Nuka-Cola addiction, which can lead to splitting headaches if Nuka-Cola isn't consumed on a regular basis.[8] The unique taste of Nuka-Cola is the result of a combination of seventeen fruit essences, balanced to enhance the classic cola flavor.[3][9] The balance is precarious and minute adjustments can affect it severely.

After the War, Nuka-Cola is still one of the most popular soft drinks of the post-nuclear world, as large quantities of it were preserved in a fairly pristine state, although it tends to be warm, irradiated, and flat. The classic Nuka-Cola taste is the result of combining seventeen different fruit essences with the classic cola tastes, enhancing, but not overwhelming it.[3][12] By 2077, Nuka-Cola bottles take on a newer look akin to a rocket ship and advertising also follows suit with the space-themed mascot: Nuka-Girl.

VariantsEdit

LocationsEdit

  • Three can be found at the bar in the Mojave Outpost.
  • Two can be found in Camp McCarran.
  • With the Nuka Chemist perk, for every three bottles of Nuka-Cola, two bottles of ice cold Nuka-Cola can be made.
  • Gametitle-FNV OWB One can be found on the floor of the kitchen of house #102, in Higgs Village.
  • Some can be found in the kitchen of the Ultra-Luxe in a freezer surrounded by empty bottles.

NotesEdit

  • Consuming an ice cold Nuka-Cola provides a single bottle cap, just like any other Nuka-Cola product.
  • Ice cold Nuka-Cola will never get warm. It will stay chilled in your inventory indefinitely.
  • Nuka-Cola can't be chilled by conventional means, thus why the ordinary fridges throughout the wastes do not hold any in their inventory (assuming the ordinary fridges still work to begin with).
  • Despite the boosted effects, it has the same value of regular Nuka-Cola.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • During the 2008 E3 as a promotional item, people were given a real drinkable version of Nuka-Cola. It greatly resembles the 1950s look of the Coca-Cola brand bottles.
  • During 2015/2016 a real version of Nuka Cola Quantum could be purchased online and in Target stores worldwide.
  • The name of the Nuka-Cola creator, John-Caleb Bradberton, is an amalgamation of the inventors of Coca-Cola (John Pemberton) and Pepsi-Cola (Caleb Bradham).
  • Its logos, bottle designs, market crash, and even its name are heavily based on Coca-Cola.
