Background[edit | edit source]
Nuka-Cola Wild is a root-beer flavored beverage and is the Nuka-Cola Corporation's answer to Sunset Sarsaparilla. While it was never officially advertised as such, the Wild flavor was conceived as a direct counter to their rival's locally popular product after their failed buy-out of the Sunset Sarsaparilla Company. Wild is, therefore, one of a number of localized flavors that were not widely distributed through the whole of the US.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
A brown bottle of Nuka-Cola with a red and gold Nuka-Wild label. Nuka-Cola Wild restores 20 Hit Points and 20 Action Points upon consumption but confers 5 points of Radiation damage to the Sole Survivor.

Notes[edit | edit source]
Nuka-Cola Wild is used as a temporary quest item for a part of the quest High Noon at the Gulch, where the Sole Survivor has to serve Nuka-Cola Wild to three "regular" customers at Doc Phosphate's Saloon, which in reality are skeletons. The Nuka-Cola Wild bottles that are used can be reclaimed as soon as the quest ends.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
|The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and is speculative and may not be accurate.|
Nuka-Cola Wild is a reference to "Mr. Pibb," a brand of soda released by the Coca-Cola Company similar in taste and artwork to rival soda Dr. Pepper, and only sold in areas where the bottling rights for Dr. Pepper are not held by a Coca-Cola bottler.
