5for the person who thinks that florida uses the correct name by calling it COKE because they're so civilized, just like their friends in alabama and mississippi who also call it coke, i dont think the votes from florida should count. they probably meant to vote for Soda but got confused by the unclear ballot and picked Coke accidentaly. the correct term is SODA

2As she stands in the clearing, the cold wind dances through the trees, swirling her golden mane over her diaphanous, silken black gown. The full moon melts into the paleness of her skin. As she stirs the cauldron of zinfandel she chants an other worldly incantation. From vials as old as the echos of time she adds minute pinches of her ancestry. Her slender fingers rub together as the grains fall, releasing their magic as they touch the fermenting must. On her face is the look of both good and evil, of love and hate, of life and sex and all that sirs you. What is this unearthly potion?

11 Thank you, this is an extremely important topic, and a concern of mine for many years!! This survey will clear up a lot of issues. I use either one depending on who I'm talking to. Soda, for some reason, seems more formal, pop seems like a slang term from where I grew up in Indiana. I think I started using Soda when I moved to Chicago. When our family lived in Hannibal Missouri, the other kids made fun of us when we said "pop". I said, what do you call it? "Sodie-pop or sodie", they would reply. Most people I met when I lived there seemed to confuse "a's" and "i's". For example, they would say Indiani and Missoura. I never quite understood that. If I use Coke it means Coca-cola but no other soft drink. There, I just used soft drink and I didn't even realize it. I never SAY soft drink, I must just use it when I write. Keep up the good work.
1Coke or Pepsi, whichever you have
1I almost got laughed out of a bowling alley in California when I asked for a pop. Get off Western PA's back! POP RULES!!!! Burper? I'd say that signifies low-IQ.If you said you wanted a Coke, I'd get you a coca-cola, even if you wanted a rootbeer( you should specify) I don't have much against soda, except everyone laughs at me when I say pop if they say soda.

1I think the reason that soda is used in the Southern States predominately is due to the fact that they are closer to South America. In South America SODA is used predominately. This term obviously spilled into the Southern States.

1Since both Coca-Cola and Pepsi originated in the South, the Southern term of 'coke' is the correct term. Native American tribes could name themselves, no Englishman got to name the Sioux a 'more proper English term' so the rest of the country must pipe down and ask for 'coke'.

1other (- BATTERY POST CLEANER - I cannot understand why anyone would put something in their stomach that is capable of cleaning the corosion off of a battery. It's true ! you can clean acid off a car battery post with this stuff! You can also use it to clean stubborn grease off dirty jeans, and clean mineral deposits from a toilet bowl ! HA ! Try this - put a chicken bone in a glass of soda, observe over the next 24-48 hours - Then think about that the next time you pour a big chug of carbonated beverage down your throat -- lol o

1soda or pop - sure, I can see how it could go either way. But people who call a Sprite a "Coke" are just stupid. Coke is a brand name. It's a registered trademark. It is Coca-Cola. That's what Coke is. "A Coke" is one serving of Coca-Cola. That's the only thing it is. I think it's because in the South you have so much practice convincing yourselves that ridiculous propositions like "Jesus Saves!' and stuff are true, that you can convince yourself that ANYTHING is not incredibly stupid and inbred. The correct term for a 7UP is "Coke"??? Jesus Christ, it's just so dumb.
1OK Here's the deal -- Why does this word even need to exist? In what situation would one ever need to use the word "Pop" or "Soda"? At restaurants, the server asks you, "Can I get you anything to drink?" Does one reply, "Sure, I'll have a pop/soda/coke"? Of course not. You respond, "I'd like a [insert specfic drink title here]. When does "pop" or "soda" ever need to be used, ever? It doesn't, people, it doesn't. Ever. Never ever. Never ever again, should anybody say either of those two words.

1What the hell is wrong with people who say Pop? It's not pop, it's a damn Soda. Get it right. I know this one girl who goes by Soda-girl. She is hot. For that reason alone everyone should use the term Soda. Unless you are ordering Orange soda, then you can just call it orange, because nobody says "I'll have a, well, I can't think of what the real name of orange soda is. Crush? Is that it. But back to the important things, like calling it Soda. Do it that way from now on. If you don't, people will laugh at you and make you feel stupid. Exo.
