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.
Sugar Bombs are mildly useful food items, which provide only a small amount of Hit Points when consumed. In Fallout: New Vegas, Sugar Bombs are individually distinct from most other "basic" food items; they now provide a limited boost to the player character's maximum Action Points.
