Gum drops are a consumable in .
Fallout: New Vegas
Gum drops restore a small amount of
Hit Points and cause a similar amount radiation poisoning. While the box says "Radioactive", the gumdrops have a lower radiation count than other food items. Because of this, even a slight radiation resistance can negate this effect, rendering them harmless. Additionally, they can used to create mushroom cloud.
Gum drops are much more common in
Fallout: New Vegas as opposed to their Fallout 3 counterparts, which were one of the rarest items in the game.

If the Courier has either gum drops or bubblegum in their inventory when talking to some of the Mini Boomers an option appears to offer radioactive candy. If chosen, this will earn you Boomers infamy and the player will no longer be able to pass a Charisma check with that Mini Boomer for fame. If the Charisma check has already been passed this will not work, as that Mini Boomer will no longer have dialogue option.
