    Soda, unless it’s actually a Coke, then I call it Coke.

    I think this is a regional thing.  West Coast- soda, Midwest Pop, South- Coke.

    I grew up on POP, but then I tried to learn to say SODA. But really, in Michigan, it’s POP. A coke is Coke and soda goes in your cookies. :o)

    I used to live in WA where it was pretty split so I ended up saying both, “soda pop”

    Growing up in the Midwest, I always said pop.  When I moved to the east coast I was sick of people thinking I was weird to call it that, so now I’m converted to calling it soda.  Now I think pop sounds weird.

    I call it soda most of the time, but frequently ‘coke,’ which for me is synonymous with ‘cola’ because I only drink Coke (and not Pepsi) 😉

    Growing up in Ohio I always called it ‘pop’.  Now that I live in Florida, I’ve been trained by all my friends to call it ‘soda’.  They began ignoring me when I called it ‘pop’, so I had to start calling it ‘soda’ if I ever wanted one!

    Yeah we called it soda in NJ where I grew up but I went to school in upstate NY and they called it pop. I prefer soda because when I hear pop I always hear it in my aunt’s nasal NY accent….cringe.
