    It’s coke in Eastern NY, but when we move to Syracuse, we need to change to Pop.

    originally from texas, where everyone said soda. moved to indiana where everyone said pop, but it never stuck for me. soda is soda. i have never met a single soul (in texas or otherwise) who calls every type of soda “coke.” it’s only the one brand.

    Here you say ” I’d like to order a Coke” even if you want a Sprite, it’s all called Coke. I think some older people call it soda water still though.

    Another from Michigan and agreeing that it is pop…calling it Coke is seriously one of my pet peeves, because I always forget and when we’re down south and I order a Coke they ask me what kind, which if I’m not thinking leads to both the waitress and I thinking the other person is freaking nuts for not knowing what we mean. I remember the first time this happened, I was probably about 12 and we went back and forth for about five minutes with me saying, “The regular kind! What do you mean, what kind?” She was finally like, “Oh, you mean Coca-Cola.” I was like, “Well duh, what else would I mean?” Haha.

    I’m canadian and we would always say Pop. Coke is a brand and soda…  well that’s primarily an American word.

    I live in Alabama, so of course it’s Coke! (I’ve never heard anyone ‘down here’ say pop in my entire life, but it’s about a 50/50 split between Coke and Soda, depending.)

    (But if you ask me, I’d rather have sweet tea anyday.) 

    😉

     

     

    By the way, I just sat here and laughed for 10 minutes solid by saying “Pop pop pop pop pop pop.” My coworker now thinks I’m talking to myself, and delusional. That’s a fun word to say though. “Pop! Pop pop!” Sorry. Lol. (I am NOT making fun of anyone who uses Pop, I’m just easily amused.)

    I say soda.  I’m from coastal North Carolina.

    I know I’ve always heard that in the South people just generally call all soda “Coke,” but I have never heard anyone do that!  Maybe I’m just from a weird area lol.  ALTHOUGH a lot of people here do just call it a “drink” … as in … “I’m going in the store, do you want a drink?”  I don’t know if that’s local or not.

    I’ve never heard ANYONE from here say pop, ever.

    A great deal of Swedish is still being spoken in this house so I guess I will have to pick “other”!

    Läsk! 🙂

    Pop in British Columbia and Nova Scotia… both at the opposite ends of Canada, so I assume it’s said the same way across the nation.

    Well it’s soda unless it’s a coke. Only a coke is a coke. I’m confused if some of you are saying that you call all soda “coke”.
