What do you call it? Pop? Soda? Soda Pop? Sody Pop?

P'Gell P'Gell
Different regions of the US, and different parts of the world call it different things. I'm from Chicago, and we call it "POP"! If I'm watching a movie or TV show and someone is supposed to be from Chicago and calls it "soda" I know it's BS. (The same thing with "Sah-Sidge" no self respecting Chicagoan would call it "Saw-sage")

What do you call it, and in the thread portion, tell me where you are from, (it can be basic, like "the southwest" "The northeast" "The North Pole" " OZ" etc.

I'm in Florida and it is SODA. We can always tell someone from the northeast when they ask for pop, lol!

I've lived in 3 different provinces in Canada, and I call it pop. (Actually, I usually call it by brand name I think)

I'm from the Midwest, Iowa to be exact, and I call it pop. Now my husband who grew up in California will call it soda every so often. He's been living here long enough I think "pop" has ingrained in him

I'm in the Chicago suburbs and I call it SODA. But I'm originally from New England, so I guess that explains it

For the first 23 years of my life, I lived in Ohio and only called it "pop." Then I moved to Florida and everyone called it "soda," so I started doing so too. I still call it "soda."

BTW, you missed an option. In many places in the American South, it is called "Coke." Seriously. A typical conversation might go like this:

Person 1: "What do you want to drink?"
Person 2: "Coke."
Person 1: "What kind?"
Person 2: "Dr. Pepper."

Ok I call it "soda", but my accuracy is off today it seems as I noticed I accidentally vote for "soda pop".

Anyway I grew up in NJ, everyone called in soda. Spent 2 years in buffalo NY there was a mixture of people who called it soda and people who called it pop, I now live in FL people call it soda.

Growing up in Pittsburgh it was 'pop' - but I've been gone so long I use 'soda' like most other Californians.

That doesn't count as "Chicago" Sam.

No, really, people usually use the regional dialect from where they grew up.

I KNOW! Crap. I realized that when I finished and the survey went live! Southerners call all pop "Coke" or "Co'Cola" ;

And they look at you like you're a communist or a terrorist if you don't want your tea "sweet." We had a few close calls at Waffle Houses in the South. We like our tea, like.....tea, not like.....pop.

I wish I could change the survey.

I'm not from the South, but I call everything Coke. (Really makes my man laugh, even after all this time! LOL) I don't know anyone else who calls it that though. If I don't call it Coke, then I use the word soda. Calling it "pop" would never even occur to me. But I find those kinds of regionalisms absolutely fascinating.

None of the above. It's Coke. For everything. ATL Represent!

That's why I said suburbs

I didn't spend much time in New England growing up, but I was there long enough to learn how to talk, so when I'm really tired or drunk, I have an accent too. My husband thinks it's hilarious.

Dr. Pepper is a Pepsi product.

But you're not entirely wrong. Coke = Sprite, Coke, Diet Coke, Fanta and Mr. Pibb.

I had the perfect coke commercial the other day. Went to grab a bite at Sbarro and I asked for coke to drink. I just barely heard the cashier say 'is Pepsi ok?'. After my brain processed what my ears heard I immediately said No, Dr. Pepper please. My husband and the other cashier started a mini-conversation about how Pepsi shouldn't be served in the area without a Coke fountain in there somewhere. The cashier handling my drink immediately sparked up and defended Pepsi.

3 out of 4 prefered Coke.

Growing up in Missouri had me calling it 'pop' (strawberry pop, please; it naturally went with barbecue). Moved to Florida when I was ten, and I somehow began calling it 'soda' and still call it soda no matter what now. While living in Montana I heard it called 'soda pop'. Did have one friend call it 'fizzy shit'.

The Coke conversation is 100% accurate. Coke is also offered as a nonspecific drink choice, as in "Want a Coke?" after which you would specify which kind. *nods*

I prefer to call it soda, but I have often referred to it as Coke, too.

Coke, like Kleenex or Band-Aid, is a brand name that is definitely interchangeable with the item name. When I was in Egypt, I was always offered a "coca", short for Coca-Cola. In the traditional glass bottle too.

I'm from Labrador (Canada), a lot of people in my region call it pop, but I personally call it soda.

Pop just seems lazy to me. It drives me nuts when people call it that.

I grew up calling it pop. I grew up in Detroit. Now I'm in the absolute middle--of-nowheres-Mi dwest-blah, and people around me call it soda often enough that I've picked it up too. Also, for some reason, since I quit drinking it, I started calling it soda more. Huh.

We call it coke in Alabama. Do you want a coke is a general term for pop.

Exactly, here in the south it is just coke and everybody that comes from the north always freaks out bout it

I order a "Coke" and I expect people to respond by saying, "What kind?"

When we moved to the East Coast(about 15yrs back) and I remember the first time I placed an order. I actually got a Coke, I was mad and couldn't figure why they didn't ask me what kind I wanted. Thank goodness I am a quick learn!
