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:

hehe! I've never heard it called "pop" by anyone but midwesterners. My friends and I have always called it soda.

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.
