Guess there was a debate here at our Christmas party I didn't know about between what soft drinks are called. Anyways someone send an email company wide to show the map of where the boundries are by county of who calls it what. Kind of interesting...

:lol:

So even if it's not Coke, some people call all pop, coke?


"...My hair's mostly wind,

My eyes filled with grit

My skin's white then brown

My lips chapped and split

I've lain on the prairie and heard grasses sigh

I've stared at the vast open bowl of the sky

I've seen all the castles and faces in clouds

My home is the prairie and for that I am proud…

If You're not from the Prairie, you can't know my soul

You don't know our blizzards; you've not fought our cold

You can't know my mind, nor ever my heart

Unless deep within you there's somehow a part…

A part of these things that I've said that I know,

The wind, sky and earth, the storms and the snow.

Best say that you have - and then we'll be one,

For we will have shared that same blazing sun." - David Bouchard

I notice in the South - Georgia especially where coke was invented and Atlanta which is the headquarters for CocaCola - there is a lot of calling all pop 'coke'. Interesting map!


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Considering the map shows that California, Arizona and the east cost from Virginia to Maine call it by soda, then i'd say no, Soda is the preferred name.

I personally want to know what "other" is. If it's not Soda, Pop or Coke then what the hell else would it be called?

I understand "other" if, for example, they were talking about Nunavut and what people call it in their own language.

I just assumed all other parts labeled other were areas with no data.

I didn't know that before my brother went to Emory University in Atlanta. Coca-Cola donates a large sum to Emory and you're highly unlikely to find any other brand of soft drink there. I think calling ever type of soda "coke" is a little vague. Coke may be extremely common, but what about Sprite? Root Beer? Cream Soda? :P

I once suggested to my brother that he wear a shirt that proclaims "Coke sucks! Pepsi Rocks!" around campus. I don't think he did that. He said he wanted to keep his head attached to his body.

As a side note, I refer to all soft drinks as "soda." My wife tends to say "pop," but she'll sometimes use "soda" as well.

I've heard "Cola" and "Fizzy" as well. I went to university in the south, and heard a variety terms. Mostly, I heard Soda/Coke in cities and pop in the less populated areas.

LoL @ Sprailenes ....... more people call it by its proper name "Soda" than pop, nuffsaid :dance:
