  • I think "soda" is an American term. I'm Canadian and every single other Canadian I've ever encountered in my entire life has called it "pop".

    Personally I like the word "soda" better. Soda here is soda water or club soda.

  • Neither. I call it what it is. Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Mt. Dew, etc.

    I'm from AL.

  • I call it soda. I grew up in AL & NC.
    oddly though if you tell my inlaws (NC their whole lives) that you want soda, they will get you a glass of baking soda and water LOL
