    Soda, I grew up in Long Island/Florida. I think people in Texas call all soda “Coke”.

    HA… I love this thread idea! Half of my fam says “pop” and it drives me nuts because I grew up with “soda.”

    Fiance moved to Ohio over the summer and a lot of people say “pop,” but he knows several people who refer to everything as “Coke.” You could ask for a Sprite and they’ll say “oh yeah, I’ll get you a Coke!” which, for obvious reasons, can be very confusing! lol

    Upstate, NY here and we say soda. I remember being younger and someone offered me a “pop”. When they came back with a SODA I was totally bummed because I thought I was getting one of those frozen fruit pop things.

    I used to say pop because it’s how I was raised (I was born in Michigan and that’s where my parents are from).  But my fiance and everyone I know is southern (I mean, I’m in South Carolina and have been since I was 4) so I now say soda more often with pop just slipping out every once in a while.

    @LGenz:  I’ve come across a lot of people in South Carolina who call all soda “Coke”.  It confused me the first time someone asked their parents for a coke and got a Dr. Pepper.

    I’m from St. Louis and say soda! Though I like the term “carbonated refreashment.” I might have to start using that.
