Nuka-Cola is a consumable in Fallout 4.

Background

Nuka-Cola entered the beverage market in 2044, with the invention of the soft drink by John-Caleb Bradberton after two years of experimentation.[1] It contained 120% of the recommended daily allowance of sugar, and took the United States market by storm, and within a year could be purchased nationwide.[2][3]

The unique taste of Nuka-Cola is the result of a combination of 17 fruit essences, balanced to enhance the classic cola flavor.[4] The combination of carbonated water, caramel color, aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate, citric acid, caffeine, and natural flavors was marketed as being fortified with "vitaminerals" and "health tonics."[5][6] Ingredients were combined in just the right proportion, to the level that shortages of ingredients or changes to the recipe were noticed by consumers.[7]

Characteristics

Consuming Nuka-Cola restores a total of 20 HP, 10 AP, and adds 5 rads. Nuka-Cola can be put into Buddy through the "I'll take a beer" dialogue option to produce ice cold Nuka-Cola 12 hours later, despite not being a beer.

Variants

Nuka-Cola recipes can be found around Nuka-World to create new drinks.

Notes

  • Nuka-Cola caps seen throughout the game either in advertisements, memorabilia, or as those thrown out by the bottlecap mine have the classic Nuka-Cola logo on them, but this logo is missing on the cap of the bottled Nuka-Cola item.
  • During the pre-War section of the game, Nuka-Cola can be interacted with, causing the player character to comment, but the items cannot be picked up or added to one's inventory.
  • Concord signage advertises Nuka-Cola floats.

  2. Sierra Petrovita: "When Nuka-Cola was invented by John-Caleb Bradberton in 2044, it quickly became the world's most popular soft drink. The wonder drink soon drew a dedicated following which prompted the Nuka-Cola Corporation to release many promotional items like these. By 2067, a Nuka-Cola machine such as this rare pristine model could be found on almost every street in America. Even in today's crazy world, Nuka-Cola is still the number one choice of refreshment among Armageddon's survivors."

    Zip: "But Nuka-Cola's fortified with vitaminerals and health tonics! It even says so on the label! That means it's healthy for me!"

  7. Lone Wanderer: "The taste... I could never get used to it."
    Sierra Petrovita: "No no no! You're mistaken! The flavor is the essence of seventeen different fruits mixed in just the right proportion to give the beverage that delicious taste. In fact, in the Great Passion Fruit Famine of 2044, people actually noticed the taste difference when the flavor was changed!"
