What do you call your carbonated drink and why? When I was a child I called every drink a Coke....till one day we were at the store and my father asked what I wanted to drink. I said "Coke"....assuming that he knew I would want a Dr. Pepper. Well, to my complete surprise he came back with...yep...you guessed it, a COKE! Nonononono...I don't like Coke. So every since then I either call it a pop or by name...Dr. Pepper.

I always call it pop. All my friends in the northeast US make fun of me and tell me the word is supposed to be soda. A friend of mine in Texas calls all pop Coke. Dr Pepper, Pepsi, and all the rest. I guess it depends on where you live.

I keep it simple and say Dr. Pepper. Don't drink anything else. I would rather do without than drink anything else. My kids say soda.

Actually I was born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma and say pop...it wasn't until I moved to North Carolina that people were like "what?!". They had no clue what I was talking about and always made fun of me...so it sooo made my day when I was at the grocery store one day and looked up and seen "POP" on the aisle sign where pop goes...lol. And they didn't know what it was...sure don't pay attention to much do they? LOL Thanks so much for your response and I hope you have a great day!

My parents called it pop so that is always what I called in until I married my husband who converted me to call it soda. Now that I am divorced, I always say Dr. Pepper!
