My old Pappy called his brew White Lightning instead of Mountain Dew
This has been your George Jones reference for the day. We now return you to your regular scheduled programming.
Kajun, do you put peanuts in your Cola?
I think people on the East and West coasts also say soda. I've traveled a lot, and it seems like everywhere I go, it's soda. Glad people in Iowa typically say pop.
Completely agree with you. Doesn't make any sense at all.
I was in Florida and asked for a coke to drink and was asked what kind. I was very confused because young and didnt understand the whole concept of having different words for same thing. doesn't help that floridians have one heck of an accent to understand.
Use to when I was a kid. That was when a coke in a vending machine was a bottle not cans.
I hate cans and plastic. 95% of my beer is bottle.
In Colorado I call it Pop. Soda sounds very weird to me
Most places down south only serve Coke products, I went down to San Antonio a few years ago to visit my cousins and I had trouble finding Pepsi or Mt. Dew, granted we didn't stop at gas stations daily or anything.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
I generally call it pop.
The exception being fruit flavored drinks such as Sunkist Orange or Welches Strawberry. Not sure why but I've always referred to those as soda.
