SUGAR BOMBS – FALLOUT – homemade cinnamon cereals

Hide / show introduction

The Fallout series refers to the American fashion for boxed food in a very direct way. The wasteland is full of pre-war packaged delicacies which, thanks to the huge amount of preservatives, are still suitable for consumption even 200 years after the date of production. The inhabitants of the wasteland can therefore use so many supplies, but taking into account a specific dose of radiation with the consumed product. In addition to typical dinner dishes (Salisbury Steak or Pork n ‘Beans), the boxes also offer breakfast products. Sugar Bombs can be found in a variety of locations in the wasteland, both in Fallout 3 and 4, and in New Vegas. You can also come across billboards advertising this sweet product in the shape of nuclear bombs, which in F4 is defined by the hero himself as the consumable that provides 100% of the recommended daily dose of sugar, which is another parody of culinary customs from America. In the F3, these breakfast cereals were an essential part of Murphy’s Bombing Run, in which we were able to sell boxes of this specialty to a ghoul named Murphy, and for every 8 pieces sold, we could buy an Ultrajet. As a consumer goods, sugar bombs restore the player a small amount of health points, and in Fallout: New Vegas they increase the maximum amount of action points for a while. Due to the limited number of boxes of pre-war supplies in the game, it is worth getting an emergency exit and using the homemade sugar breakfast recipe. So enjoy this “explosive great taste” as ad says!

Sugar Bombs
homemade cinnamon breakfast cereals

PRICE: cheap
LEVEL: easy
baking paper
piece of soda can or cardboard for mold


wheat flour type 650 – 1/2 cup
graham wholegrain flour type 1850 – 1/2 cup
cream 12 or 18% – 3 tablespoons (45g)
cold butter – 3 tablespoons (60g)
sugar – 2 tablespoons (30g)
honey – 2 tablespoons (50g)
ground cinnamon – 1/2 tsp
salt – a pinch
baking powder – 1/2 tsp
water – 1-2 tbsp
sugar – 3 tablespoons (45g)
cinnamon – 1 flat teaspoon


1. DOUGH (5 + 30 min)

Put both flours into the bowl (do not omit wholemeal flour, because it gives the flakes an interesting texture and flavor), baking powder, cinnamon, salt and sugar. Mix and then add chopped cold butter and “pinch” the ingredients with your fingers to make a crumble – don’t worry if there are little lumps of butter left, that’s how it should be.

Add cream and honey to the bowl, mix with a fork and then quickly knead with your hands. If the mass crumbles and does not want to combine, gradually add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water, kneading all the time until it becomes firm. Be careful not to add too much water as the dough should be slightly dry. Also, do not knead the dough for too long, just to combine the ingredients.

Shape the finished dough into a ball, cover it with foil and put it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes (or 10-15 minutes in the freezer).

2. ROLLING (5 min)

Take the cooled dough out of the refrigerator, divide it into two portions and put one of them on a sheet of baking paper. If it is very sticky, lightly sprinkle it with flour. Flatten the dough with hands and put on the second sheet of paper. Roll them very thin, about 0.2 cm. Pull off the top sheet and transfer the finished cake with the bottom paper to the sheet. Do the same with the remaining dough.

Here you have two options, fast (but not bomb-shaped) and more time-consuming (but faithful to the game visuals)

1. If your cereals do not have to be in the shape of bombs, just cut the rolled dough into squares with a sharp knife and punch them lightly with a fork. That’s all, and you can move on to the next point.
2. However, if you want to have petals exactly like in in-game ad, you have to work a little more.

You will need a suitable mold – you can use thin cardboard. Our strip was 12 cm long and approx. 1 cm wide. We slightly bend its two ends in 2 places to get the shape of a bomb (or fish if you prefer), sticking the tail together with duct tape.

Once you have constructed the mold, use it to cut individual cereals, preferably very close to each other, so as not to keep rolling the dough forever. Then carefully remove the scraps of dough and place the cereals close to each other (why – you will find out in the next section). Pierce each cereal with two fork teeth.

4. MILK + SPRINKLE (5 min)

Brush the surface of the flakes with milk or water (if you do not have a brush, dip the bottom of the spoon in milk / water and apply it to the flakes) – it will be much faster if the flakes are placed close together.

In a bowl, mix cinnamon with sugar and sprinkle the mixture over the cereals, quite generously and evenly. If there is not enough of it for all the cereals, make an extra portion.

5. BAKING (10 min)

Put the flakes in a preheated oven (170 degrees, top and bottom option) and bake them until they are browned, about 10 minutes. They will be soft when removed from the oven, but very crispy when they cool down.


Sugar Bombs + milk or yogurt = a solid, sweet breakfast. They are also good for eating without any additions, as sweet mini cookies. They restore a small amount of health points, and in Fallout: New Vegas they increase the maximum amount of action points for a while. So enjoy your ‘explosive great taste’!
