Conversation at work today and now I'm curious. What is your generic name for carbonated drinks?

I say "soda" (grew up around the DC area). I used to tease DH all the time, who's originally from KY, because he called it "pop," for the longest time.

After a few years in DC/VA, he started calling it "soda," but now he's stationed in New Orleans, and he calls it "pop" again.

In the midwest we call it pop but I have so many east coast friends that I now call it soda.

I say pop! One time it did take me a couple of minutes to make someone understand what a "pop machine" was though...

I said "pop" because that was most common growing up, but we also call it "sodas", "cokes", "colas", or "drinks." "Diet pop" is also a biggie.

I grew up calling it pop; that's what my parents called it. But now I call it soda. I'm not sure when or why I switched it up. I'm a Washington (the good one) native and I've never lived anywhere besides the Northwest (including Alaska).

Bearing in mind that I am a New Zealander now living in Australia, I call it Soft-Drink or Fizzy-Drink!!!
