Some of my favorite brands growing up...Canfield's
Shasta, Elf...all Pop. Not Sodas...not Cokes...Pop.
I came across this interesting web site:
The Great Pop vs. Soda Controversy
I've always known that different people around the
country called pop different things. For the most
part, I've always lived in "pop" territory. I
thought it was strange that Southerners called it
coke...even if it was orange, root beer or even
lemon lime...it's a coke. As far as Soda goes...I
always thought it was just a snobby East Coast thing.
Apparently folks around St. Louis and Wisconsin call
it Soda too. Of course they're all crazy. It's Pop.
Why would you call it anything else?
