OK--I know this is going to be really dumb, but which is it? I think it is pop, because that just sounds right.

I don't really call it either. I just say Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, etc. I never say pop or soda.

Living in the Midwest, it's called POP. And when we ask for Ginger Ale, we expect to be served VERNORS, not Canada Dry!

In Australia, it's neither......to us 'pop' is a style of music and 'soda' is like soda water as in Scotch & Soda, it's a mixer.

We call it "softie's" as in "soft drinks" or just by it's name e.g. Coke, Pepsi, Sprite etc etc.

There you go!

Its pop for me...when I went to Cape Cod and ask for a pop or soft drink they look at you like you're nuts. They are defiant in calling it "soda".

In New England they call it tonic, but I call it soda or tonic. No difference to me.

Depends where you live I believe. Most Canadians will say pop, if you here soda then the speaker is more likely to be from the good old US of A.

Don't know about the rest of the world.

"Hey, anybody want a glass of pop?" just sounds too stupid to me.

I get crap about this all the time, I'm from the coast, and call it soda - but, here in Colorado lots of people call it pop.

As XQF said - "pop" is music and "soda" is soda water (ie: carbonated (mineral) water). Any other drink that is carbonated is a "soft drink"

When I was growing up, my mum always referred to everything as a "Coke" even though it wasn't. I never picked up that habit.

I don't know about the masses, but I usually call soft drinks by their name - root beer, Sprite, Coke, etc.

Thank you Copper 1: In North America, the person who says "pop" is most likely Canadian; the person who says "soda" is most likely American. And now we know what it's called in Australia, too!

Neither. Usually I call it by it's name ie "Can I get a Coke?" or "Do you have any and ginger ale?" Although if I were to say either one of those, soda would be my term of preference.
