    Born in UP, Michigan; grew up in southern Ohio; have lived in Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Chicago; currently own property & spend time in coastal & interior Alabama; ATL, Georgia, mtns of N.Carolina and mtns of TN. Have always called a beverage by it's name. Coke ain't Pepsi ain't Dr. Pepper ain't Kool-Aid; tho Band-Aids are generic and Kleen-X (?) is generic. Go figure each cultural traditions!

    All I can say is.... WOW!!! I wonder if Western PA (Pittsburgh) is like Buffalo and Rochester, as Philly is to NYC.

    I remember being confused by hearing the word pop (to me it sound more like paaahp, and still does) at high school in suburban MI when I first went there... Oh the agony of enduring the MI soccermom accent! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Out of high school the drinks were just specified, which made more sense to me than going around saying "paaahp", but that may have just been the kind of people I hung out with [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Down here in Australia noone uses the names soda or pop. Generally just go by the name of the drink itself. Lumped together we just call them soft drinks.

    Seandew! Darn Aussies trying to make too much sense... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    I had an early childhood in North Carolina and moved to Nebraska in 76(at ripe age of 12). I still remember going to a place and asking for a soda, and they said,"You want vanilla,chocolate or strawberry?" I made a face and said,"Don't you have Coke or anything like that??"
    Soda to them, meant like an ice cream soda. It is pop in these flat, windy plains.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    We in Florida would say "coke" or "soft drink" or just "drink", unless you moved here from somewhere else, then I guess you keep using whatever you're used to. If you say "soda" here, everyone will know what you are talking about, but say "pop" and you sound like you're from outer space or somewhere.

    lol Bug...you broke form! And now I know where you get all your buzz from...Mt. Dew has the most caffeine of all the soft drinks (except those icky freak drinks like Jolt).

    I say soda or drink (short for soft drink) and almost everyone I know says that too.

    Pop is...well...weird! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
