| ||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 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.
In Fallout 3, Sugar Bombs are mildly useful food items found throughout the Capital Wasteland, which provide only a small amount of health when consumed. Compared to other food items, Sugar Bombs are somewhat rare, something which factors into the unmarked quest Murphy's Bombing Run.
Murphy's Bombing RunEdit
In Fallout 3, Sugar Bombs can be traded to a ghoul named Murphy in Northwest Seneca Station for use in crafting ultrajet. He will pay you 15 caps for each box of Sugar Bombs that you bring him, and an extra 15 (for a total of 30 caps) with a Speech check. For each 8 boxes of Sugar Bombs brought to him, Murphy will also sell the player one ultrajet.

Behind the scenesEdit
Sugar Bombs are a reference to the newspaper comic series Calvin And Hobbes, where "Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs" are Calvin's breakfast cereal of choice.
