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.

That sweet fizzy crap I can't stand that gives me heartburn.

I'm not a soda drinker, in case you can't tell, but I would generally call it soda. Since in my family my father is "Papi" or "Pop" calling it pop would get confusing.

Beppie, you're one of the few others I know who do. <big grin>

Yep, for me it's a "soft drink" as opposed to a "hard drink" which contains alcohol. I don't know where I picked up the term--probably from my mother, and she was raised in Kentucky.

I'm from Texas, and if you say it's anything other than "coke" (note the lowercase) you get laughed at.

The waitress comes to your table and you ask what kinds of coke they have, and she reels off the list: you know, Coke, Sprite, Dr Pepper.

I personally don't drink Coke; I drink Dr Pepper, exclusively. The only decent soft drink. ;]

i am all on the lemming's side here!

it is coke; everything is coke.

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...

*smirk* i'm just kiddin', guys...

... but it *is coke, all the same... =P

Well I'm from Kansas so it's pop. If you say soda you'd get a weird look. I've learn to say 'medium pepsi.'

Oh yeah, I say fizzy drink sometimes too. Not as often as soft drink, but certainly before I'd call it pop or soda.

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.

Here in Maryland, we say "soda". But I have alot of friends (in other states, that is) who say "pop" and we have playful arguments over it sometimes. lol.
