First appearancesEdit

The Sweetroll is a staple for many of Bethesda's games, and is sort of an ongoing joke. The meme 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 alleyway 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: ...

Morrowind and DaggerfallEdit

The sweetroll phenomenon also appears In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim; when the player passes city guards, on occasion they are known to make comical voices towards the player while saying "Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll?", where the possible intention is to make fun of the player by making him seem weak, or even more likely be a joke about the starting questions in Arena and Daggerfall.

Sweetroll (Fallout)

Other gamesEdit

In Fallout 3, there is a scene acted out for the phenomenon. At the player's 10th birthday party, a kind old lady gives you a sweetroll. When the birthday cake is ruined, the local bully attempts to coerce you into giving him the sweetroll. Most responses will result in him punching the player until security steps in.
