Default Re: Soda or Pop ???

It is soda. Saying "pop" makes you sound like my Aunt Marianne, and you don't want that. She is from upstate NY, but so is my Mom, and I grew up outside Boston, so I don't know where that leaves us regionally.

Calling all soda "Coke" is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, and if you do this you are ignorant. If this is a thing people do in the South, well, shoot. You add it up.

I always thought Mr. Pibb and Dr. Pepper were rivalrous Coca-Cola / Pepsi brands. Learning they are both Coca-Cola products is blowing my mind. Pibb seems to be gaining POPularity, however, since I have recently seen it at the McDonalds at LAX.

It's all coke here. If they only have pepsi, sometimes they ask if that's ok, sometimes they just bring it to you.

This is a great thread! I can't believe no one has ever thought of it before. Let's cover another topic that is in desperate need of debate and has never been resolved!

Default Re: Soda or Pop ??? It\'s Coke.

Don't care what it is...it's Coke. Example:

"I'll have a Coke."
"Okay, do you want Coke, Sprite, or Dr. Pepper?"
"I'll take a Dr. Pepper."

Happens all the time out here.

If someone asks what you want to drink and you answer "pop" or "soda" what happens next?
