in md, its soda

but

if it's like pepsi vs coke, you say coke. in a restaurant, if you want either pepsi or coke (whichever they serve) you ask for "Coke" if you want rootbeer, its "Rootbeer" You wouldn't order "Pepsi" expecting pepsi or coke. You order "coke". Its like the south but a little less strict.

err...yes, most people who want pepsi, do in fact ask for said pepsi, not coke. You kind confused me...although asking for rootbeer, and gettign rootbeer, does make a fair bit of sense...

Let's make it simple, and ask for the exact drink you want, ehh?

i was born in TX and there it's call coke, any carbonated beverage is a coke.

person 1: What kinda cokes you got here

person 2: Coke Sprite Mr. Pibb Mellow yellow.

person 1: i'll have a coke.

the first time it's generic but the second time it means Coca-Cola.



I wish my grass was emo so it would cut itself.

Who freaking cares what the crap is called in general. calling it pop doesnt make it taste any different then calling it soda, and it doesnt change the craps appearence.

Shut up

BTW-NW ohio is pop


Oh please... This is more of a cultural analysis than a study on the "correct" term for carbonated corn syrup-based beverages.

You and Enos need to get a life... or lives, whichever you prefer.

In the end, I vote "beer"... Since I never order soda anyway.

If you go to a restauraunt, and you want the standard, non-flavored drink (i.e. Pepsi and Coke) then you'd ask for a "coke". You would not ask for a "Pepsi"


And quit writing in white, it pisses me off.

In Southeast Florida it's soda.
