My mom’s from Minnesota, so there was always a conflict in our house about whether it was Duck, Duck, Goose or Duck, Duck, Grey Duck. She got odd looks from all the kids in my preschool when she asked if we wanted to play Duck, Duck, Grey Duck. 

That being said, if you go to New England, people look at you funny when you order a pop. I lived in New Hampshire for the summer, and had to get used to ordering a “soda” instead of a “pop”. My children will definitely learn that it’s “pop” though, no matter where they’re raised.

I have never heard of Duck, Duck, Grey Duck.  That’s too funny.  

In Jersey, pop is called soda.  When I lived in Ohio for 1-1/2 years with my ex, they called it pop and I hated it.  They used to correct me all of the time though.

As an Italian near South Philly, I say gravy instead of [spaghetti] sauce.  There’s always a debate about that from others.  J’s parents say sauce and he’ll correct them now.  If it’s cooked with meat, it’s gravy. ๐Ÿ™‚

My Fiance is from MN, I am from a state away. I say goose, he says grey duck. We both say soda (I think this is b/c we worked in the restaurant industry?) I had never heard grey duck before he said it haha. Good luck with your friendly arguement ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s definitely grey duck. Just like it’s pop, not soda. My husband is from New Hampshire but we are now living in MN where I grew up and he’s now starting to say pop instead of soda.

If it’s pop, it’s grey duck – You can’t pick and choose!

It’s pop and it’s grey duck!!!

Anyone outside of MN doesn’t seem to call it grey duck, but I will never call it goose!!
