A couple of years back, in high school, I went to the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine in Boston, and when I said "pop", barely anybody know what I was talking about! Most everyone else said "soda" and a guy from Finland, I think, referred to carbonated beverages as "fizzy drinks". I have actually been working on the more known term soda, but everybody here in the midwest thinks I'm an idiot! So, how do you or people in your area refer to Coke, Pepsi, or other carbonated beverages??
