If I were at a party at your house, and you asked me what I'd like to drink and I, in turn, ask you what kind of pop you have, would you know what I was referring to?

Yeah... soda pop! i.e. Coke or something like it!

I think that most people from the US would know what I meant, but another VJer disagreed with me, so it really piqued my curiosity to try to find out if pop is as well-known as I think it is.

:lol: Not necessary. I was really just curious since I've been to a fair few states in the US and have always been understood when I ask about pop.

my hubby used to look at me funny when I said pop.. but somewhere down the line I started calling it soda...

I guess it is easy to do when that is what you hear it called all the time... *shrugs*

It used to be a pretty regional thing...in the mid-west they'd say "pop" and in the South they'd say "coke," and everywhere else they'd say soda. When I was a kid, we moved from Florida to Colorado and I got the strangest looks when I said "pop." Now I think most everyone everywhere would know what you're talking about.

Here's a cool "Soda vs Pop" map:
