The Midwest says pop because Faygo pop was HUGE so we just kinda refer to every fizzy drink as pop now
#91 to #28 - astickywhale (01/09/2013) [-]
Also the south says coke because that is where it originates, more specifically NORTH CAROLINA (woop woop) but anyway thats why we call it coke in the south

How it goes down south
"Would you like a coke?"
"Sure."
"Well what kind would ya like?"
"What kind do you have?"
"We got Mt. Dew, Pepsi, Mellow Yellow, Dr. Pepper, Sprite, 7-up, and Coca-Cola."
".........."

Gas stations have both. And a lot of the Chuck E Cheeses I've been to have both as well.

I live in Alabama, this is how that situation would play out for me:

"Would you like a coke?"
"Sure."
"Well what kind would you like?"
"The coke kind? I'll take cherry coke if you have it."
"Sir, I meant what kind of soft drink."
" ***** , you said coke. If you wanted to know what kind of soda I wanted, just ******* say soda, bitch."

I say Pop. This map also says I say pop.
User avatar #76 to #67 - gravediggernalk (01/09/2013) [-]
Your chart says that my specific county says Coke, but is closer to saying pop than it is to saying soda.. This occurrence can be explained by the mass gathering of Yankees in the next town over.

Didn't think it'd be even close to that kind of right.

So if you went to someones house and asked for a soda, you would say "hey, hand me a coke."
How would they respond? "Which kind? we got mountain dew coke and sprite coke and pepsi coke."?

There seems to be some confusion about how it works in the South. Yes, soda/pop is often collectively referred to as "Coke". However, when it is necessary to clarify that you are referring to all sodas/pops, typically either soft drink or soda will be used to avoid confusion.

It's just more efficient this way. Chances are you're referring to one specific type beverage anyway, so you might as well specify to begin with. It saves time and energy on everybody's part. Plus, they were all invented in the South anyway, we should be the ones to dictate which terms are used.

We're the most obese region for a reason, we're clearly going to be the superior method for ordering sugary drinks. There are so many other things in the South's history that have terribly wrong, but if there's anything we've gotten right, it's the soda debate. It's the only part of my cultural identity that I have to be proud of, please just let me have this one thing.

Anyway, if you are in a restaurant and ask for Coke, you will get one of the following three responses:
1. "OK sir/ma'am, I'll be right back with that"
2. "I'm sorry, we only have Pepsi, would that be alright?"
3. "OoooWeeee, we gots erselves a fancy city-buoy, Nu-oh, all we gots roun he'a is RC Co-La. Straight from the Good Lo'd His-self"

I can honestly say I've never had a trailer park outside of a trailer park. If you see anything about RC Cola, you need to get out immediately, you've gone too deep into the South and your life is in danger. Know the sign, know the danger.

Anyway, I hope this was both informative and entertaining, and I thank you for reading this unnecessarily long post about geographical linguistics.

I live in Iowa, and I can confirm that we don't have much to do here other than to argue over the proper term for sweetened carbonated beverages.

From what I've noticed (family from south compared to family from nyc and me from chicago)

I've heard it more frequently called soda in southern states and pop up north.

Nothing exact though :P probably just depends on what you heard growing up

Am I the only one that uses the brand/drink name? Like Pepsi or Dr. Pepper
User avatar #107 to #93 - xxospreyxx (01/09/2013) [-]
I just tend to call Pepsi, Coca Cola and drinks like that Coke. Might get me in trouble with the authorities one day...

I'm from the south. Every thing is a coke. You want a Dr. Pepper? You order a coke. You want a sprite? You order a coke. You want a Pepsi? What the **** is wrong with you.
User avatar #84 to #61 - Edi (01/09/2013) [-]
Pepsi master race. Coke really doesn't taste as good, more of a just brand name so people like it more. My opinion.
#97 to #61 - lordaurion (01/09/2013) [-]
Because Coke is a brand name? It's like going to Gamestop looking for Battlefield and Call of Duty and asking for DOOM.
