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.
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 of 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 ingredients of Nuka-Cola are Carbonated Water, Caramel Color, Aspartame, Phosphoric Acid, Potassium Benzoate (To Protect Taste), Natural Flavors, Citric Acid and Caffeine. What gives it the unique flavor is the essence of seventeen different fruits mixed in just the right proportion to give the beverage its trademark taste. During the Great Passion Fruit Famine of 2044, people actually noticed the taste difference when the flavor was changed. May also include up to 10% vitaminerals, health tonics, or benzoylmethylecgonine
