RQOTD - Monday 1/30

Saw this on FB today:

So what do you call soft drinks? Pop, soda, coke, or something else?

I'm originally from TN and yes, we do call pretty much everything that's carbonated coke.

I never knew that people called all carbonated drinks coke in some places. Totally interesting.

My cousins are from Atlanta, and it's all "coke" but if you order a coke at a restaurant they will ask "What kind of coke do you want?"

In Jersey, it was soda. I was so confused when we moved to New Mexico and I was asked what kind of coke I wanted. I thought they meant diet or regular! I don't know what they call it here since I don't drink it anymore.

Pop is definitely #1 in my area. You'll hear soda though too.

Soda here. There are exceptions though, some of the older generation call it pop or coke, but those of us that are more refined call it soda Lol

There is another one I hear farther down south in IL that makes me crazy, sodi pop. It's like nails on a chalk board to me for some reason.
