Pop or Soda


Recommended Posts

Going off of the Coke vs Pepsi thread. What do you call them- Pop or Soda?

I’m in Michigan, USA & we call it pop. When I visited a penpal in Tennessee years ago, she had asked me if I wanted a Coke. But she offered Pepsi lol It was funny how they referred to “Coke” as generic.

We always used Soda as the term for it up here and it seems to massively outweigh the alternative "pop" term.

However, many people (including myself at times) will refer to Coke as more of flavor than a brand.  So getting a Pepsi, Coke, RC, etc. is all good for "I'll like a coke" most of the time.

I worked up in Minnesota once and the accent and words are so different than Tennessee (where I'm from).   In fact, I also noticed they called soda "pop".   Anyway, the other difference, obviously, is they simply sound very different than southern people, but I'm all for accents.   It makes a place unique.

It's called coke here as well but they can generally be called soft drinks. It's few people that calls it soda. If you go to store and ask for soda, the seller would be like what's soda? It's either you call it coke or Pepsi or soft drinks. If you say soft drinks, they will still ask you which one, so you have to be specific.
