    Do you call it Soda or Pop?

    Soda or Pop? Or Soda Pop?  What do you call it and why?

    I call it soda. I never even heard it referred to as "pop" as a kid till I went to visit relatives in Ohio. When they asked "Y'all want some pop?" I said "Some what?"

      We do say "POP" here. But we don't say "Y'all" This is Ohio, not W. Va.

    I have been a "soda" person since I can remember, as that's what my parents called it, and that was what it was referred to regionally where I grew up in the Northeast.

      Interesting I often wonder where the word "soda" cam from; mom used to call it pop. It could be based on region. smile

    I would call it Soda, I think Pop is something out of the 50s.  But in actuality, I call it by it's brand name, Coke, Pepsi, Sprite.  In my mind, soda is just carbonated water that is delicious when mixed with my favorite Whiskey.

      I see! I don't know if pop is from the 50's people in the Midwest still call it pop; but calling it by name has surely came a long way.smile

      It's one of those geographical things. Everyone in the northwest, who's native to the area, calls it pop.

    I am from the South.  It is all Coke down here.  When you want a soda, you ask for a "Coke", then you tell them what kind of "Coke" you want (Coke, Mountain Dew, Sprit, Etc.)

    I used to call it soda, but now I call it "sugar water." That's what they used to call it even before my time (which goes way, way back.) I've been looking at the number of grams of sugar in my drinks lately .... and it's ridiculous. I picked up a root beer the other day and it had 71 grams of sugar in it.

      My grandma called it sugar water. As in 'don't drink that sugar water, it'll rot your teeth!'

    I call it pop.  Growing up, that's the only name I ever heard.

    I was raised in NV and never heard it called pop until I moved to the South. It is pretty much regional as to what it is called. I have heard it called both but usually not in the same area.

    I'm from southern Virginia (where we DO say y'all!) and I call it pop. I'm the oddball, though. I started calling them 'pops' because I had a friend from Pittsburgh, and that's apparently what they call it there. I have a friend in Tennessee and they call them Cokes, no matter whether what you're asking for is a Pepsi or an RC Cola. I miss those, by the way. I can't get them in western New York!

    Usually in the UK we call it pop, except we do have a flavour called 'Cream Soda'.  If you ask for soda over here, you get soda water - yuk!

    I've heard both ways of saying it but I call it soda. I think it has a lot to do with which region of the U.S you're in, I grew up in central IL so there was a mix of people saying soda and some people called it pop.

    Growing up in New York I called it soda. If it was Coke Cola I called it coke. When I moved to Washington, DC metro area, the locals called it pop.  To me a pop was a ice pop. In California it was soda pop.

    Pop. When we lived in Missouri we called it Soda and when we lived in Minnesota we called it coke, whether it was coke, pepsi, or sprite.

    I'm from the UK so in general I call it 'Pop'. However, to make things confusing, we did have a popular product over here called 'Soda Stream' some years ago which allowed you to make 'Pop' at home.

    Growing up in Indiana, I used to call it pop. After I joined the military and used to get made fun of calling it pop, I began calling it soda pop.
