You say coke? I thought that was a texan thing, lol.

Okies say it too. "Wanna Coke?"
"What flavor ya want?"
"Big Orange."

yep, down here everything is a coke, unless it is a Dr. Pepper(a Native Texas coke) of course.

It's pop here, but there is no "pop" except Coke. Everything else is just soda.

In Pittsburgh, Pa, it is "pop".

I grew up just outside of Newark, NJ/New York City and it was soda.

In the politically correct left state of Oregon "it" is called what it is. Sobe' or Rockstar or Hansen Green Tea or carbonated flavored mineral water by it's proper name... When someone here says Perrier' they mean exactly that. I was born in Missouri, but even after 20 years here, everything is a Coke. Yep, a Coke root beer.

Grew up calling it soda, moved to the south... now it is coke.

03-09-2007, 08:09 PM
I had an aunt from Missouri. To her, everything was a 'sodie water'. But she was nuts so she don't really count! LOL

03-09-2007, 09:52 PM
Its SODA. Know someone from WI who calls it pop though.

03-09-2007, 10:20 PM
NewYork Jewish princes's and thier family call it Soda

"May I have a cola please?"

"I'm sorry Sir, we only have Coke."

"Is it cola flavored?"

"I'm not sure........ Hey, Mary, what flavor Coca Cola we have?"

"Bring me a cola, no ice, please. Coke, Pepsi, RC, whatever...."

I miss Europe; when you ordered something to drink you were assured of getting a Full Measure before they added ice, unlike having a glass that's 70% ice as we do herel

Pop in Chicago. Everyone thought I was weird for saying pop in the Army so I started saying soda. Now back to pop.

Call me a dork, but I call it either a "beverage" or "tasty beverage".

Welcome to the forum. I've never heard anyone call it either of those. :)

Thanks for the welcome.

Anywho, it was something I picked up in highschool and it kinda stuck.
