I have a friend who freaks out over the word Pop. She hates it. I say pop, never soda, but sometimes the brand name of what I'm drinking (ie. Coke, Sprite, Pepsi, etc.). It's probably a regional thing. She's from Quebec and I'm from Ontario, different words for the same thing...

As FlirtieGirlie said-Pop is deceased, at least here in my part of NY. Along with tennis shoe and stocking. My friend who moved here from somewhere out west still says tennis shoe-he gets awfully strange look when he does.

i am a writer, so i understand the game of wanting generic terms ("soda," etc.) in order to protect brand names "Coke," etc.). but since i am a dr pepper (note there is no period in their proper brand name!), i am all in favor of destroying the coke trademark.
c'mon, people, join me! let's make coke join the ranks of linoleum, kleenex, and all those other poor companies who fell into the pit of generics. whee! hooray for anti-capitalism...
Dont worry Miz S, I dont drink it that much either, I have about 1 every month. I like juices!!! They are soooo nummys, apple jucie, orange juice, cranberry jucie.....they are so much healther for you then POP!!!!!!!!

I grew up in North Dakota and Iowa, where it was pop, then came to Missouri, where it's soda or sody (so-dee) and I get laughed at. Ah well. I drink water anyway.

well, i'm from the panhandle of florida and we do not say soda or pop. when we are talking about soft drinks no matter what kind we say "coke". i don't know if it's different in other parts of the south or not but we don't say it any other way.
