Sugar Bombs are a consumable item and crafting component in Fallout: New Vegas.


This section is transcluded from Sugar Bombs. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Sugar Bombs is a pre-War breakfast cereal that can be found all around the Wasteland, packaged in white and blue boxes with a red ovoid logo at the top, fully labeled as "Sugar Bombs breakfast cereal." Numerous promotional posters can be found posted on walls around the wasteland, touting the Sugar Bombs' "explosive great taste!" and some supposedly contain a "free Captain Cosmos decoder ring," though one has yet to be found. The cereal pieces themselves are modeled after atomic bombs, resembling the Fat Man, or perhaps more relevantly, a mini nuke.


Within Fallout: New Vegas, Sugar Bombs are now individually distinct from most other "basic" food items. The most obvious difference from Fallout 3 is that they now provide a limited boost to maximum Action Points, similar to chems such as Jet or Rocket. Comparatively, this boost is small, but stacks with other similar effects while not carrying any risk of addiction.
