| ||For an overview of Nuka-Cola soda in the Fallout series of games, see Nuka-Cola.|
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.
The company began to develop a product called Nuka-Cola Clear, with "only minimal loss of life." They were able to modify the look of Nuka-Cola, yet give it the same great taste. The formula and some entries on a research terminal can be found in the Nuka-Cola plant, but it never made it into production. The group Sudden-Death Overtime, wanting to sell this, has sent Mercier to precure the formula while their leader, Ledoux, made contact with the buyer.
The drink was not made or finished, and so cannot be seen in game.
Nuka-Cola Clear is mentioned in Fallout 3.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Nuka Cola Clear resembles clear diet colas such as Tab by the Coca Cola company, and Crystal Pepsi which was sold in the early 1990s.
- Similarly, "White Coke" was a soft drink produced at the request of Soviet Marshall Georgy Zhukov who enjoyed the taste of Coca Cola, but could not be seen drinking it as it was seen as a symbol of American imperialism in the USSR.
