Given to the 10-year old Lone Wanderer by Old Lady Palmer during Growing Up Fast.

Related quests[]

Growing Up Fast - After receiving the sweetroll, Andy eviscerates the cake with his circular saw and Butch accosts the Lone Wanderer demanding they give up the sweet roll. A variety of options are given for response: a simple dismissal, an attempt to share, a spiteful spit on the roll before giving it up, to a verbal jab at his mother's drinking habits. Most responses will provoke Butch to get up and begin throwing punches at the Lone Wanderer, which prompts Officer Gomez to intervene.


  • The Lone Wanderer can eat the sweetroll before Butch has a chance of asking for it, which will then activate a different scenario: Butch then says that the Lone Wanderer will "get it later."
  • The Lone Wanderer can also drop the sweetroll on the ground before Butch's confrontation, prompting a speech option about "throwing the sweetroll away."
  • Planting the sweetroll on Butch will result in the above two options appearing.
  • The item will disappear from the inventory when the quest is completed.
  • Cut content The sweetroll was also integrated into the game files and modules for Fallout: New Vegas, but eventually not used.

Behind the scenes[]

The "Sweetroll Scenario" is a running gag and scenario often postulated in character generation sequences in Bethesda-made games. Fallout 3 is the first time that the scenario is actually acted out in-game.
