In honor of the general polls working, here's a general poll!

By the way, soda is the only correct answer.
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

Soda, unless I'm talking about Coke. I obviously don't call Mountain Dew "Coke", but I do call Coca Cola "Coke".

Soda

And let's keep it that way.

Interesting...I did notice in Pittsburgh the soda/pop line changed. Didn't know it was so dramatic...


The south is silly. They just call all soda "coke" ???
What if they want a sprite? Confused

I'm a proper Northerner who calls it pop.  And I've not had one since early January.   And I don't miss it.

I'm a pop guy as well.  The only pop/soda/Coke I've been drinking lately is Coke Zero.  It's better tasting than I remember diet pop being.

I had been drinking diet pop for years...Diet Pepsi, Diet Dr. Pepper, Diet Sprite, Diet Root Beer, Diet Orange, etc....  I had gotten so used to the taste of diet pop, I couldn't drink "leaded" pop because it was too sweet for me.  After reading studies that diet pop doesn't really help with the diet because apparently it just makes you hungrier, I stopped drinking it and have only been drinking water for the last 3 months.  It might just be a phase, but I honestly don't miss drinking pop.

yeah I found that odd. Wonder why it is.
And yes, it's called soda because it is soda!
I'm a proper northeasterner. Cool

Soft drink is a very general term that usually incorporates drinks such as lemonade, iced tea, and such.

Weird how I rarely hear milk referred to as a soft drink.  I guess that's big boy stuff. LOL

That's really dependent on where you live. Even in America there are a ton of different names for it. I know it as soda, and find it silly to call it anything else, but I know people from Chicago and that area who call it pop.
