If you ask for a soda here in Canada... you'll get sparkling water.

Pop is what we say

Btw- I chose Coke.

I prefer Coke.
Me too (on both).

At my 7-11, though, Diet Pepsi is the best drink in the fountain. Their Diet Coke tastes weird.

Yeah when I was in Georgia last summer I didn't really see Pepsi anywhere...so you don't have to worry about Pepsi drinkers...lol. I all wanted was a Pepsi because I don't really like Coke and I couldn't find it. I ask the one waitress and she just kinda laughed at me. I guess because Coke is based down there they got used to it!

C'mon people its "tonic". (Remember Boston is the "hub of the universe", so we know best)
In the cola wars, I vote Pepsi (which is definitely the sweeter of the 2), but the soda (tonic) I drink most is Mountain Dew.

I like pepsi better because to me it's
sweeter than coke. I also LOVE
vanilla coke.

In Chicago- we say pop
When I lived in Dallas Tx - we said soda

I call it my legal stimulant.

why is it bothersome for people that it's called pop in some places? I couldn't give a crap if people call pop, soda. I've seen tons of "is it pop or is it soda" talks and the pop people never care but the soda people do.

Just curious, that's all.

In Minnesota if you asked for soda no one is going to look at you funny but in general everyone calls it pop.

You should come to GVSU. There's a major Pepsi monopoly here.

Right. I don't get it either. I think soda sounds weird but I get what people mean when they say it...I guess I don't even think that much about it.
