Where you grew up and where you live determine what you call a soft drink. There are 3 options. Soda, which is the preferred title here in Eastern NC. Pop is popular across much of the Nothern regions.... and then there is the third one that I encountered living in Texas. COKE.. EVERYTHING is Coke!!!
Here's how a conversation goes in Texas..
1: You want a coke?
1) What flavor?
2) Pepsi if you have it, otherwise Dr Pepper is fine (you ALWAYS go with Dr Pepper as your 2nd choice in Texas as EVERYONE in Texas has Dr. Pepper. I think it's a law.
