You want a Pepsi.
You ask for a "coke".
You get Pepsi.

You want a Coke
You ask for a "coke".

As long as we are on the topic, people who aren't around the Great Lakes might not understand this, but does anyone else notice how much different pop from the south tastes compared to pop from up here. I like Pepsi better then Coke, but I would rather have a Coke from up here then a Pepsi from down south, the pop just tastes funny. I think it's because we have cleaner water, thanks to the Great Lakes.

Geez, Sweetness, I lived in Milwaukee for 12 years and everybody used the term "bubbler". Funny how a short trip down the interstate makes such a big difference.

Other Milwaukee-isms were "up North", "hey" and "dere" as in "that's a nice coat you got dere hey", "where's the bubbler, hey?", etc.

Here in Texas, most call it coke. Soda is pretty common, but coke is the most popular. ;-D

The only people who call it "pop" down here are either in wheelchairs or using a walker to get around*. :-b

Meaning the older generation. ;-)

I've lived on both coasts and as I've noticed over the years, this poll is pretty accurate in concluding it's: Pop in the northeast and Soda in the southwest. Then there was my dad in Upstate NY that called it Soda pop.

I was boating up in Door County which is north of Green Bay, we were out on Lake Michigan and it was probably 25-35 feet deep, and you could see the bottom easily. The water way up north is very clean.
