Aloha Friday



It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog. After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

What do you call soft drinks?

I once dated a guy that was from way up north and he called it Pop. We refer to pretty much any carbonated beverage as "Coke". We'll also call it by its name if we're being specific(Mountain Dew, sprite, etc). I've also heard some of you call it soda - we don't use that word either.

  Pin It!

Growing up in Seattle, we always called it pop. When I moved to PA, the locals looked at me strangely if I asked for pop, since they call it soda here. :)

Pop. I grew up in Minnesota, but also lived in Ohio where they call it pop, and now in Denver where most people call it pop. In CA they called it soda, but I still called it pop when I lived there.

We really have no preference living in the middle of the country as we do. Pop, Soda, Soft Drinks. All the same to us.
