    I'm always careful to call it 'soda' here, but in real life I call it 'pop', because... uh... that's what everyone does where I live.

    The majority of the USA calls it Pop, so its pop. Deal with it.

    I have never once heard it called soda in real life, so I don't know where the "Pop" hate comes from.:confused:

    I just think pop sounds stupid. Pop is a noise not a drink

    I've never been able to say pop in the context of - "do you want a can of pop" - while keeping a straight face - therefore i don't, i refer to it as the brand name or not at all....i.e. coke, 7-up, sprite etc...

    I'd much rather Soda became an everyday word for it here.

    Not once in real life have I hear it called soda. And pop is still not used a lot either, generally you just call it by brand name.

    I think it's sort of a regional thing. Where I've come from, it's always Pop. So this thread is sorta pointless.

    And I ****ing hate the idiots who call them fizzy drinks.
