Or, in Britain, they're soft drinks.

...Which makes just about as much sense as either of those names
User avatar #200 to #4 - TheSchwartz (03/11/2013) [-]
Or in Japan, where they're called "Juice"
User avatar #208 to #4 - mintea (03/11/2013) [-]
Well, I can't speak for all of Britain but I know we English folk call it pop, and I'm pretty sure the Scots call it "ginger"

I've lived in Ohio my whole life. I've always called it pop. So does everyone else in this little town.

I've heard jocks calling Coke/pepsi Juice...I was in a chippy in edinburgh and some bloke wanders in and gets a battered mars bar and a can of juice...I was confused
User avatar #317 to #250 - mintea (03/11/2013) [-]
Wait wait wait
Battered...mars bar?
._.
I am curious now.
#319 to #317 - jaysim (03/11/2013) [-]
> Take a mars bar
> Deep fry it
> Have a heart attack
This Chippy advertised the fact that they would deep fry anything...ANYTHING

or you know, pop or whatever we're drinking...in my town if we need some one to pass a drink over it's " 'ere giz that drink over mate, cheers!"
User avatar #278 to #4 - kolsinder (03/11/2013) [-]
I always say 'fizzy drink'.

I asked for lemonade in Chicago and they looked at me like a had two heads.
User avatar #8 to #6 - smalltimelime (03/10/2013) [-]
Wait, what do they call it?
User avatar #10 to #8 - daisynomnom (03/10/2013) [-]
Soda or sprite. I asked for soda whenever I wanted lemonade from that point and I always got it.
User avatar #11 to #10 - smalltimelime (03/10/2013) [-]
ohhh I always wondered what soda was actually defined as
User avatar #51 to #11 - jimimij (03/11/2013) [-]
Soda actually implies carbonation. as in "whiskey and soda" I dont see why lemonade would be called "soda"
User avatar #229 to #51 - ningyoaijin (03/11/2013) [-]
Lemonade is carbonated...

Yes but no one calls them that, it#s 'fizzy drinks'
#557 to #4 - mattkingg **User deleted account** (03/11/2013) [-]
no.. it's pop
User avatar #16 to #4 - douthit (03/11/2013) [-]
That's what it is here in the American South, too. We say "soda" around Northerners so we don't confuse them.
#24 to #4 - anon (03/11/2013) [-]
It's called a soft drink since as opposed to a hard drink they have no alcohol content ergo soft drinks makes total sense.
#191 to #4 - jakeleefromtheuk (03/11/2013) [-]
I'm British and i can confirm that we refer to them as a can/bottle of wizz-pop-wizz-bang-feel-the-bubbles-go-down

Anyone who actually lives in Britain (like myself) will tell you we call it pop, not soft drinks
User avatar #197 to #188 - cakershaker (03/11/2013) [-]
what? no way! it's called a fizzy drink.
User avatar #199 to #197 - lordmoldywart (03/11/2013) [-]
Or that, pop and fizzy drink are the most popular here, but pop is used more often

User avatar #572 to #420 - lordmoldywart (03/12/2013) [-]
I've never been to the Isle of Man, but I assume they say pop there too. Everywhere in the UK people say pop more than fizzy drink
User avatar #574 to #572 - bigmanfifty (03/12/2013) [-]
Really? I said 'pop' in London (where I live) and my mates were like 'you want music, what?'

Go back to Britain... with your spotted dick and dead baby!
#474 to #4 - schlemmons (03/11/2013) [-]
It's soft drinks because they don't contain alcohol. You don't hear them called it often or anything, but alcoholic drinks are "hard" drinks.
User avatar #5 to #4 - daisynomnom (03/10/2013) [-]
Fizzy drinks too
User avatar #7 to #5 - smalltimelime (03/10/2013) [-]
Oh yeah...
Well, that one makes sense.
Though usually we kinda call it what it actually is?
User avatar #449 to #4 - paintplayer (03/11/2013) [-]
"Soft" refers to the fact that they lack alcohol, as opposed to "hard" as in Mike's Hard Lemonade, which as you may know contains alcohol.
User avatar #22 to #4 - monkeytiger (03/11/2013) [-]
In britain I thought they would be called something like 'fizzy-dizzy carbo-liquid flarghle barghble' or some ****

What would the "other" category be?
#431 to #78 - boredomavenger (03/11/2013) [-]
I'm from Tennessee and I can vouch for this map. It's not that people called everything coke, it's that coke was just a term for soft drinks in general. The prominence of the use of this term in the south is most likely attributed to the largest Coca Cola bottling plant being in Atlanta, Georgia.

When I moved to Michigan 6 years ago I was extremely confused when someone asked me what kind of pop I wanted. They were more confused when I asked them what kind of cokes they had.

It's just generic.

User avatar #268 to #104 - burningsmurfs (03/11/2013) [-]
Yeah I can at least understand the others but just saying coke is just asking for confusion. I also find it funny when people say "it's not pop this isn't the 1950s" when in the fifties there were places called soda fountains/soda shops. That's usually the argument I use when people say I shouldn't say pop.

Technically, Sprite is produced by Coca-Cola, so it makes about as much sense as anything else.

We typically say coke if it's a coke product. If not, say it is Mountain-Dew, we say Mountain-Dew.

It doesn't work for Pepsi products like that. We just call them by name
#179 to #104 - anon (03/11/2013) [-]
There's not many drinks down here in the south. Coke Cola is pretty much the only thing related to soda or pop.
