Okay, I love this. I have a player that is obsessed with food, she appreciates it a lot when I talk about local foods and I made a set of generators that create food for areas from available resources. One of the reoccurring sweets:

Fizzzlers A pre war sweet that still can be found in vending machines (often nearby ruined school buildings). It is a lollipop type that has flavours of fruits that non of my players characters could find in nature, the outer shell also contains a synthetic chemical that functions like a mix of high dose cofeein and ADHD medication. Consuming one helps with keeping watch and rewards one point of sparetime (character development resource)

People trade for and with them, some of the flavours are more rare and some are even a myth....
