Saw this today, thought it was kinda cool, seeing what different parts of the country, and even states call soft drinks.

That map seems mostly accurate, but I live in the Pacific NW and everyone around here calls it soda, while the map suggests we use pop. When I grew up in MI, it was always pop and I didn't start using the term soda until I joined the Navy and got stationed on the west coast.

It's soda, by God. Come to my house and ask for pop and you'll get one in the kisser.

Well, I live in NE and most people call it soda. I usually ask for Coke but that is because Coke is the type of soda I want to drink. I will say that I've never called it pop.

I'm a soda guy.

Got to admit I never understood the coke thing but have learned to say Coca Cola when my answer requires to be expanded upon.
