So, I grew up calling it "pop." That was in northern IN. Then I moved to Jax, FL to teach and everything was "cokes" so the first day I asked the cafeteria lady for a "coke" and she asked me what kind of coke. Huh? Was there more than one? (Not back then!)Now I just call it all "soda" in general and call each kind by its specific name. My favorites right now are Cherry Coke, Mountain Dew and I've recently been drinking the Mt. Dew Voltage. I tried Cherry Coke Zero at the World of Coke and have been drinking it most--it is not my favorite by any means but I don't need the extra empty calories from soda.
If you are reading this, what do you call soft drinks and where in general do you live?
(I posted this same chart over a year ago on the adoption blog in case you think it looks familiar).
