The Nuka-Cola Corporation was a pre-war softdrink manufacturer, well known for its eponymous Nuka-Cola line of products.



Nuka-Cola was invented in 2044 by John Caleb-Bradberton. Its unique taste gained widespread popularity quickly, ending with it 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 a hundred polled.

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

The company's main factory was located in Washington, DC, which used cutting-edge equipment to keep the world's most popular soft drink in full production 24 hours a day.

Cherry and Classic Nuka-Cola

The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Nobody liked the new taste of Cherry Nuka-Cola when it was introduced. 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. Diet Nuka-Cola also exists, but it's hard to find after the Great War.

Fusion Nuka-Cola

The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Phil, the Nuka Cola dude, had the thankless job of riding around the Wasteland with his bike and refilling all of the Nuka-Cola machines that littered it. It was a tradition passed down (rather stupidly) from generation to generation. Phil is not impressed and doesn't like Nuka-Cola much. It is rumored that he had something called Fusion Nuka-Cola, a unique, unknown taste which was created by fusing together some Nuka-Cola dregs.

Ice Cold Nuka-Cola

In Fallout 3, you can buy a Nuka-Cola machine for your house that will turn generic Nuka-Cola into Ice Cold Nuka-Cola.

Nuka-Cola was the most popular flavored soft drink in the United States before the Great War. After the War, Nuka-Cola remains the most popular soft drink of the post-nuclear world, as much of it was preserved in a fairly pristine state, although it tends to be warm and flat.

Nuka-Cola Clear

Main article: Nuka-Cola Clear

The company also 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 but give it the same great taste. The formula and some entries on a research terminal can be found in the Nuka-Cola Plant. It was never produced.

Nuka-Cola Quantum

Main article: Nuka-Cola Quantum

In 2077, a new version called Nuka-Cola Quantum was introduced. According to the advertisements, it had twice the calories, twice the carbohydrates, twice the caffeine and twice the taste. To make it stand out more on the shelves and to give it an extra kick, the Quantum included a mild radioactive strontium isotope (and an eighteenth fruit flavor - pomegranate). The effect was a drink that not only boosted your energy, but also glowed with a bright blue light. While no ill effects were recorded by the Food and Drug Administration, the isotope also caused the drinker's urine to glow.

Yellow Nuka-Cola

Main article: Yellow Nuka-Cola
The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

In Chicago, during the Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel reign, there were reports of a strange Yellow Nuka-Cola. However, it was quickly identified as a substance designed by a "mad naked man" who "made water".

The products of the Nuka-Cola Corporation appear in all Fallout games except for Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. Its plant in Washington, DC appears in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • During the 2008 E3 as a promotional item, people were given a real drinkable version of the product. It greatly resembles the 1950's look of the Coca-Cola brand bottles.
  • The logos, bottle designs, market crash and even the Nuka-Cola name are obviously based on those of Coca-Cola.
  • The name of Nuka-Cola creator, John Caleb-Braderton, is an amalgamation of the inventors of Coca-Cola (John Pemberton) and Pepsi (Caleb Bradham).
