I'm a POP man living in a SODA world. I've tried to adapt, but it's not easy...

Looks to me like soda drinkers vote for Barack Obama and pop drinkers vote for Fred Thompson. And Coke drinkers vote for the southern candidate. Definitely looking to swing the Coke voters in 2008.

This is so wrong ... I saw this post and the poll before logging in and was compelled to log in so that I could cast my vote. Sad, sad, sad. I had such dreams for myself as a child, and yet ... it has come to this ... just wanting to kick the soda drinkers' asses...:(

Soda all the way! Pop sounds funny, even though I'm from solid pop country. Even my wife agrees with me!

I had a good buddy in college who grew up in Anaconda. . .when it was time to tip a few, he was fond of suggesting "we need to go have a few pops, Billy."

It is obviously pop. We Ohioans truly know the right word.

They weren't called "Pop Fountains" they were known as "Soda Fountains."

My wife and I both grew up in Pop country, and both independently came to the same conclusion -- pop is a funny word and soda sounds better. We lived in soda country for 7 years and it was wonderful... now we've moved back to pop country and grimace every time we see the "Pop" aisle at the grocery store.

As a non-drinker of non-beer fizzy drinks, I don't really have a dog in this race. That said, pop is a funny word for the beverage. This coming from a guy who loved The Pop Shoppe in his young days. It just seems that there are too many alternate associations for pop - a father, popular music, uncorking champagne sound, a sock to the jaw... Far more alternate meanings than soda.

How do you like that for a non-answer?

Oh, and where was the option for more cowbell? That's my vote, mate.

I'm 100% Soda (from NorCal) but am in an area where it's both. I hear pop more often than soda in Spokane for sure, but over here I don't notice a preference.

Also I'm wondering what those dark green counties call soda if they don't call it soda, pop or coke...

"Hey, ma! I gotta drive into Santa Fe and get me some Diet Jabberwocky!"

...I had no idea Adam Sandler-esque vocabulary was so widespread....

I don't get it. Do people from the South only drink Coke and no other kind of pop/soda?



(soda ftw)

Looks like I need to find and post the immigrants' guide to Texas. Down here, and throughout the South, all soft drinks are known as "Coke". To ask for a soft drink by any other name could get your ass kicked. :lmao:

Found it!

I have already expressed my opinion on the matter, so now would like to attempt to draw a middle ground (excluding Coke because that is rediculous because it refers to only one, maybe 2, forms of carbonated liquid), it must be soda or pop, correct? But did the word not originate as "Soda Pop"?

Looks like soda might have been somewhat established (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=soda) before soda pop:

Soda fountain is from 1824; soda jerk first attested 1883. First record of soda pop is from 1873.
