Sugar Bombs is a food item found in Fallout 3. It can restore some of your Hit Points, but also gives you a small amount of radiation.

Sugar Bombs are packaged in a white and blue box with a red ovoid logo at the top. They are fully labeled as "Sugar Bombs Breakfast Cereal." Numerous promotional posters can be found posted on walls about the wasteland, touting Sugar Bombs' "Explosive Great Taste!" Some posters also state that a "Free Captain Cosmos Decoder Ring" is inside select boxes, but no such item exists in the game. The cereal pieces themselves are modeled after mini nukes.


Unmarked quest: Murphy's Bombing Run

Main article: Murphy's Bombing Run

This item can be traded to a ghoul named Murphy in Northwest Seneca Station who will create Ultrajet for you. 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) caps with a speech check.
