I grew up calling it coke, but switched to pop when I was in college and found out that saying coke confused people who didn’t grow up calling it coke. And now I’ve noticed myself saying soda more and more since I’ve been in MN now for about 17 yrs.
I grew up calling it pop. When I spent a year in Memphis and when I first arrived I ordered a large pop and I got a weird look from the lady behind the counter. Since then, I have called it soda. I have friends, from the south (various parts) that call it soda, coke or pepsi. They find the northern version, pop, funny. I still use soda to this day.
When I was a barmaid in Germany I never knew what the Americans were ordering when they asked for a soda or pop. To me it just sounded like they asked for a fizzy drink and I was expected to guess which…
Growing up as a California girl, I’ve always called it soda or more often, the actual name of the brand-coke, 7-up, Sprite, etc. Since marrying an Ohio boy however, I’ve caught myself saying pop and thinking it’s quite cute
Funny you should ask…we just use the brand name usually, but last night we were so tired neither of us could come up with the right name, eventually I came out with soda pop, something I’d never say, and my partner’s effort was “that bubbly sh*T” in fairness it only came up ’cause he was feeling poorly having drank too much of it, grumpy old man:)
Very late entry, but compelled to chime in.
It was always “pop” during my teens, (I had none of the vile processed sugar substance prior to that, as I was raised by sweet folk afflicted by the “whole foods/Adele Davis” bit…)
In high school my best friend was a diabetic, so all we drank was sugar free Tab (so gross now that I think about it ) It still wasn’t allowed in my home, but she had them at her house!
Once I got to college all the “big city kids” called it “soda”.
Now, it’s whatever spurts from my vocal cords at any given moment…but I’m with Jackie, I think “pop” is my fav!
