Is it soda or pop or .....

  1. Just wondering what carbonated beverage is called where you live. I'm from Seattle and growing up we called it pop and when I moved to Cali. when I said pop everyone looked at me like huh? So now I'm used to saying soda. We have such a diverse forum and a lot of international members. I'd like to know what everyone calls it in your neck of the woods:biggrin:
     
  2. hehe! I've never heard it called "pop" by anyone but midwesterners. My friends and I have always called it soda.
     
  3. It's called Pop in Michigan
     
  4. Soda!
     
  5. In Phoenix, I hear pop a lot which I've never said before. In VA/NC, we always said Coke for everything. If not Coke, we just said Sprite, never pop or soda pop. We used to say soda too.
     
  6. soda. coke also has become the accepted generic term much like "scotch tape".
     
  7. I love regional slang.
