    Soda or Pop

    I saw something on the news about one of the convenience store chains that is running a promo disguised as a survey of what people refer to soda pop as. So how do you refer to soda pop, I'am guessing pop if your in the Ames area metroplex.

    Re: Soda or Pop

    I call it soda. Because they don't call it "Jones Pop" for a reason.

    I noticed they call it "Coke" in Texas/Louisiana.

    I've always called it pop, lately I noticed I called it soda a few times.

    Re: Soda or Pop

    I normally call it pop, but I have been known to refer to it as soda every now and then. As for the coke thing, they do that in S. VA also. Never can forget one of my relatives ordering an Orange Coke when they visited us. Or the one that ordered a Sprite Coke. Poor waitress thought they wanted them mixed.

    Re: Soda or Pop

    I think it has to do with Coca Cola being based in Atlanta...

    Beat me to to it...so true in the SE part of the country for sure! I have friends that I have heard ask for a "root beer coke" or an "orange coke".

    Pop is a very midwestern term.

    I also hear them referred to as "cold drinks" pretty often down here as well.

    Re: Soda or Pop

    I was more than a little confused when the IHOP waitress asked me what kind of Coke I wanted ; that was during the first Independence Bowl road trip (my how the years have flown by).
