    They're only made properly in the Philly/New York corridor, because of a lack of decent Italian rolls(the most important part) and ingredients elsewhere.

    People I know always use the products name. This prevents product-brand brainwashing arguements (One friend refuses to drink a Pepsi-Company product till he dies). But other people around here call it soda.

    Actual conversation: Setting, My apartment.

    Guy: Got any Pop?

    Me: Huh?

    Guy: Pop?

    Me: What'd you break?

    Guy: No! Pop, Have you got any?

    Me: Oh! Weed!, Yeah, It's up above the fridge.

    Guy: No! Pop, as in a drink, Like Mr.Pibb.

    Me: Mr.Pibb? Where the F*ck are you from?

    Guy: Augusta Georgia

    Me: Figures. No, we don't have any Meester Pibb. But grab me a Coke while your at the fridge.

    It was well over a week later I figured out what he was trying to say. Next time I see him I'll apologise or something I guess.

    Even though I live about a mile from the old Dr. Pepper Headquarters it all called "coke". That is until you actually get to the refrigerator and then you have to specify which kind you want, Coke, Dr. Pepper etc.

    In Dublin, TX you can still get Dr. Pepper made with pure cane sugar rather than the corn syrup mix all the makers use now. It tastes really good.

    Here in NM, most people just call it "coke". I, on the other hand, will probably use any one of the other terms (soda, pop, or soda-pop).

    nothing frustrates me more than to have someone ask me if I want a "coke" only to hand me something that isn't. (Restaurants are a different story)

    I'm from NY and I gotta agree with Larry here. Soda is soda. Pop is my old man. [​IMG]

    Down here in southern Louisiana, we call them soft drinks. Although, "coke" is used very often as well.
