1I've lived in south Carolina my whole life and I have NEVER heard someone call a Sprite "Coke" Sprite isn't Coke. You rarely hear "pop", occasionally hear "Soda", sometimes hear "Soda-Pop" frequently hear "Soft Drink", but most often the drink is called by actual name. My dad did sometimes call it "A Dope" though.
