Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?
« on: April 23, 2003, 04:00 PM »
One of the most burning questions of our times happens to be what you call your favorite soft drink...

I'm a pop man myself

I too call it pop. And it was hard habit to break, but I finally got my wife to start calling it pop also. Took a little while to get that part of NY out of her.  ;D

Having traveled in the South, that is one of the funniest things about going there.

"What'll you have hon, Coke?"
"Sure"
"What kind?"
"???, Coke"
"What kind of Coke?"

When I say Coke™, I mean Coke™. (Clearly the servers don't always notice the little ™ inflection.)

When I speak in generic terms, I say soda.

I've always said soda for the most part, but once in awhile I'll catch myself saying pop.

I usually say, I need a cold one. But it will all come down to saying pop.

I'm a "pop" guy myself, but I think it basically breaks down to what region of the country(s) you're from.  Very few areas probably have much of a mixture of the various choices.

I even know places where they use none of the above, but instead call it a "cola".

I would have to go with the above statement.Never hear anyone ever say pop or soda out here in the sticks,rarely Coke.

Although when I say it,I say"I Need a Dr.Pepper."

I can't stand to hear someone say I want a pop, soda, drink, ect.
I say what I want, Pepsi, Mr. Pibb, Coors Light, ect. I do not like generic terms for something so specific.

Give me a Pepsi!! :)

See, it is funny that only a few hundred miles away between GB and Minneapolis, the venacular changes between Pop and Soda

There are a whole bunch of Wisconsin/MInnesota word differences...
which I am trying to think of right now

I know one is Drinking Fountain
