| ||For an overview of Sugar Bombs in the Fallout series of games, see Sugar Bombs.|
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 is 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 the player's maximum Action Points, similar to chems like jet or rocket. Comparatively this boost is small, but stacks with other similar effects while not carrying any risk of addiction.
