    @LGenz: My fiance and his family call them buggies instead of carts.  I also said cart corral one day and he didn’t know what I was talking about.

    @LGenz: I always find it amusing when I hear buggy about shopping carts, especially since store signs say carts!  But I’ve actually heard it a little more here in South Florida than I did in OK.

    That map is awesome, great find!

    I grew up in MI and everyone said “pop”, but my parents were from PA and referred to it as “soda”, so that’s what I grew up calling it.

    Now I live in PA again and we all say “soda” out here.

    I’m Canadian and everyone I know, myself included, says “pop.”  My parents are/were Americans (WI) and used to say “soda,” but they’ve been converted.  Haha~

    I’m from Texas and I say soda (in my family the older generation calls it coke). When I was going to college in Louisiana, people were  calling it cold drink.

    I’m in Vancouver, Canada.  Everybody calls it “pop”, or sometimes “soft drink”.

    i use to say “coke” all the time (i lived in south carolina).  then my family moved to ohio and people here would get confused all the time when i would ask for a coke so i started calling it soda.  i can’t bring myself to call it pop which is what everyone here calls it.

    I’m from Texas and I say Coke or soda (pretty interchangeably).

    In Ireland I ordered a Sprite and got a lemonade. That was odd.
