    Pop, Soda, or Coke. Which Is It?

    Interesting map...



    I call it a Coke, because that's what it says on the can. Real Coke. None of that diet stuff.

    I tend to call for a Soda Pop... That's not even on the map!

    Coke here. The dialog usually goes

    Want a coke?

    Yes.

    What kind?



    As I've always suspected calling all soft drinks a Coke is a Southern thing.

    There are some green flecks in North Carolina and Virginia, indicating "Other." I wonder what word they use there?

    Thanks,

    I call it soda. But some folks around here call it "tonic" I don't see that one listed.

    I always ask for a Pepsi. Bottled or canned coke is no where near as good as a soda fountain coke imho. But my favorite is RC cola.

    Milk shake=blended milk and flavoring
    Frappe = blended milk, flavoring and ice cream
    Ice cream soda= milk, flavoring, soda water mixed and topped with ice cream. yum!!

    In Rhode Island a frappe is called a "cabinet"

    I believe the vernacular is "drink" as in Grape-drink, apple-drink, etc.

    What ever it says on the can. Mostly I hear northerners say pop, but around here its what is on the can.
