Interesting variant of the popular soft drink from the friendly Nuka Cola people. Nobody liked the taste.

Cherry Nuka-Cola is a consumable item in Fallout Tactics.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Nuka-Cola
Nuka-Cola was invented in 2044 by John-Caleb Bradberton. Its unique taste gained widespread popularity, quickly becoming the most popular soft drink in the United States with an extremely dedicated following. The widely known dazzling blue bottle color was adopted as standard in 2052, after market research programs indicated that the blue color was the favorite in 86 people out of 100 polled.

The ingredients of Nuka-Cola include: carbonated water, caramel color, aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate (to protect taste), natural flavors, citric acid, and caffeine. What gives it a unique flavor is the essence of seventeen different fruits mixed in just the right proportion to give the beverage its trademark taste. Some versions of the drink also include vita-minerals and health tonics. During the Great Passion Fruit Famine of 2044, people actually noticed the taste difference when the recipe was changed.

By 2067, vending machines with ice cold Nuka-Cola could be found on virtually every street in America.

Cherry Nuka-Cola is a variation of regular Nuka-Cola. After it was introduced, it turned out that nobody liked the taste. This resulted in a marketing disaster for the company, which quickly attempted to save the brand by introducing the Classic Nuka-Cola, tasting exactly like the original, but in a new bottle. The story of its introduction, rejection, and replacement by Classic Nuka-Cola mimics that of new Coke.

CharacteristicsEdit

Cherry Nuka-Cola resembles the original Nuka-Cola bottle but the liquid inside is a bright red instead of being brown. Instead of having 17 fruity flavors this unpopular Nuka-Cola only had the one (cherry). It has no effects and carries a 15% chance of getting a Nuka-Cola addiction.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • During the 2008 E3 as a promotional item, people were given a real drinkable version of Nuka-Cola. It greatly resembles the 1950s look of the Coca-Cola brand bottles.
  • The name of the Nuka-Cola creator, John-Caleb Bradberton, is an amalgamation of the inventors of Coca-Cola (John Pemberton) and Pepsi-Cola (Caleb Bradham).
  • Its logos, bottle designs, market crash, and even its name are heavily based on Coca-Cola.
  • The story of its introduction, rejection, and replacement by Classic Nuka-Cola mimics that of New Coke. In reality however, New Coke initially received generally positive reactions in terms of taste, but the iconic status of the old formula produced a strong backlash reaction that pressured executives into changing it back.
