The sweetroll, or sweet roll, is a consumable item in Fallout 3.
The Sweetroll is a sweet pastry, when consumed it restores 5 hit points.
During the quest Growing Up Fast, the Lone Wanderer is given a sweetroll by Old Lady Palmer. The sweetroll will then disappear from the player's inventory when the quest is completed.
- Growing Up Fast - once Andy eviscerates the cake with his circular saw, Butch accosts the Lone Wanderer and demands that they gives up the sweet roll. The player has a variety of options for response: a simple dismissal, an attempt to share, a spiteful spit on the roll before giving it up, to a vicious verbal jab at his mother's drinking habits. Most responses will provoke Butch to get up and begin throwing punches at the player, which prompts Officer Gomez to intervene.
- The player can eat the sweetroll before Butch has a chance of asking you for it, which will then activate a different scenario: Butch tells them that they'll "get it later".
- The player can also drop the sweetroll on the ground before Butch confronts them, prompting a speech option about "throwing the sweetroll away".
- Planting the sweetroll on Butch will result in the above two options appearing.
Behind the scenes
- The sweetroll is a staple for many of Bethesda's games, and is sort of an ongoing joke. The sweetroll itself originated in The Elder Scrolls: Arena where, at the beginning of the game, one of the class-determining questions is: "While in town the baker gives you a sweetroll. Delighted you take it into an ally to enjoy, only to be intercepted by a gang of three kids your age. The leader demands the sweetroll, or else he and his friends will beat you and take it. Do you: ..."
- The model for sweetrolls originate from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
