it really depends on the area of the country. In the midwest down to the south its strictly considered pop and I find it very entertaining when they get frustrated when you ask for a soda.

You ever go to the "pop fountain" and ask the "pop jerk" for a drink?

Me neither. :)

I wouldn't recommend going into a pizza shop in Brooklyn and asking for a pop...

Oh, and apparently the Coca-Cola Company calls it soda

I say " Do you have any Dr. Pepper?" or "Can I have a Coke?" or " A splash of Coke with that Jack please?"

Aside from loaning out my can of Troll Spray, I call it POP!

But there should be more options to choose from like:
-Cola
-DEW!

As Master Yoda once said: "There is no Try! There is only DEW!"

All the above coming from a self-diasnosed Diet Mt. Dew Drinker! :D

I'm originally from NY where it was always soda.

So I was surprised when I got to AZ in 1972 and it was commonly called pop.

Now, 40 years later, I don't hear anybody calling it pop anymore.

Maybe because everybody here now got here from someplace else.



By the way, maybe we can start a poll based on the regional differences between "bag" and "sack."
