What do you call it? Soda, Pop...

In California we used Soda, in Colorado they used Pop I thought it was the weirdest thing ever, then in Missouri it was back to soda and I had gotten so used to saying pop they would make fun of me LOL. Now here in Illinois it's back to Pop. So what do you call it where you live?

  • It depends on my mood, and especially who I'm talking to. I live in California, and I'd say its pretty 50/50 on what I do call it. My mom's family is from Oklahoma though, so I've grown up hearing it called pop.

  • When I was younger i used to say pop ( I grew up on the rez). Then one time I said it like that to a guy I was hookin up with and he told me I said it like a white person (whatever that means!) Now I say soda for no particular reason.

  • Texas: They're all called cokes. A Dr. Pepper is a "coke". A Pepsi is a "coke".

  • I call it by whatever it is. Or I call it a "drink". I dunno, maybe I'm weird. Pop ALWAYS bothers me. I have friends from up north that say pop, and it makes me cringe.
