I agree. Louisville (in white) is a “soft drink” town. Occasionally I hear “soda”, but never “pop”, and if you ask for a “Coke” you will get only a cola.
True, Danny. But then again, up there, they call the town Luhvul. (I’m from about 60 miles south of Luhvul)
I’ve lived in parts of the black and never heard it called pop. Coke, yes.
I switched to water with lemon so I don’t have to figure out what the local terminology is anymore!
In Texas it’s pronounced Dr Pepper (Did I just spam B&P?)
In New England, I grew up calling it tonic. Don’t they STILL call it tonic?
In Canada, it’s pop (generically). From the map, I can see the cultural overflow, one direction or the other.
But if you want a Coke, you say “I wanna Coke”.
Yup, always called pop. Unless you want a golden throat charmer brewski.
I assume a Bud Light is more like a golden shower.
I live in turquoise, and I’ve never heard Coke used generically.
Of course, in my area, if you asked for an (iced) tea, you get sweet iced tea. Back home, if I ask for an unsweet tea, the assume I want it hot. Since iced tea there is by default unsweet. Although McDonalds is probably changing that since they now sell both (and I think just about everywhere…)
