Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

Click to enlarge.


We say "Pop" around here but just a few miles to the east is all them "Soda" people. The dividing line is the Allegheny Mountains.

Re: Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

Soda pop must fall under the "other" category. That's what I hear most often in the Pacific Northwest. Personally, if it's not beer I prefer brand name stuff like 7-n-7 or gin-n-tonic

You mentioned a gin & tonic, and like Pavlov's dog I started salivating. And it's only 4:20 !!!
Time to get a life!!!

Re: Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

Good to see my hometown in Wyoming is in blue because I've been saying Pop all my life. So, am I to understand the people in the South say give me a Coke when they want a 7-UP? That seems strange.

Re: Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

The map starts to make sense. When I grew up in Iowa, it was almost always pop, sometimes soda pop. When I got to California I couldn't understand SODA.

Now I'm multi-lingual!

Re: Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

What about sarsaparilla? Been saying that forever. But then, there is the age factor....

Re: Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

What happeded to Pepsi? I usually say soda over pop.

Pop was used early on in Ca. Like one of the old signs on a early gas station store in Ballico read, "I don't know where mom is but pop's in the cooler"

Re: Do you say Pop, Soda or Coke?

Grew up in Oregon saying Pop. Went to college in California and when I said Pop, I was accused of being a hick from hickville. I was from hickville, but not really a hick, so I switched to Soda. Now I am back in hickville and have sort of stuck with Soda.

That is a great map. Where did you find it?
