Soda vs. Pop: The Results at last...

Also when I moved to the Milwaukee area and someone asked if we had a bubbler I was at a total lose. My employees had to tell me what it was.


If somw one asked me for a bubbler, they would be surprised at what they got. A big pipe with water and ganja.

I guess where i live (raleigh, nc) is not far enough in the south to have it consistently called coke, because I usually don't hear coke. I call it soda, but I am originially from NJ so that doesnt really count. I'm going to try and pay attention from now on to see what people call it.

I live in Philly, so its definitely soda. No pop, no coke unless you're going by brand name.

Oh, and we also dont have subs or heroes, its a hoagie.

Considering half of my state(PA) is blue, and the other half yellow, explains why i have always called it soda pop.

So where do I fit in? Where do I belong? I have, and regularly use all forms of these. I say soda, pop, soda-pop, coke and cola. It just depends on the mood.Maybe it comes from living in a big city where all kinds of people come together, and carry over the dialects and phrases from where they lived.

I call it sodapop.

But that's just the kind of guy I am.

Although I would ridicule anyone who said "pizza pie".

I've never said or heard anyone say "pop" in my life. Never heard someone say "coke" either unless they're actually getting a coke.

I've always called it pop, and everyone around here does.
