| ||For an overview of Nuka-Cola soda in the Fallout series of games, see Nuka-Cola.|
Conceptualized by the Kanawha Nuka-Cola plant, the idea for the drink came from celery-flavored sparkling waters, as well as mixing artificial flavors, package design and marketing to trick people into thinking it had health benefits. After more data gathering, cranberries were determined to become the first in the potential line of "snack beverages", using surplus cranberry supplies from Raleigh County as a primary source. The plan was to use marketing tactics to present it as a premium lifestyle brand for the rich and meant for those who had refined palettes and a taste high quality products. Like many of the fruit variants of Nuka-Cola, this one would predominantly feature cranberries. Heavily advertised around the Watoga area of Appalachia as "coming soon", it would stay unreleased. Nuka-Cola Cranberry would have likely been a regional flavor for Appalachia, like both Victory and Quartz. That being said, it did appear to have some form of release before the war occurred.
Nuka-Cola Cranberry is mentioned-only in Fallout 76.
