It's called "pop", people.  Silly non-Midwesterners.  :P


I drink Diet Coke.  If they don't have it, I drink water.  Every now again I'll have a cream soda or a Sprite....but other than that, it's Diet Coke or nothing.

Pineapple's pretty good.

As for "pop", I understand that that's ONLY in midwest, and even then, some people call it soda =P.

It is called SODA!!!! And I don't drink it. If I must (i.e. if there is nothing else), I usually drink 7-up, Sprite, or Ginger Ale. I used to like Dr. Pepper but haven't had it in DECADES!  I may still like it. I also like Root Beer but don't have it too often.  But I HATE cola-any kind. Coke, Pepsi, RC, Diet Rite, etc. etc.  :P

People down here call all pop "Coke", even if it's not a Coke product.  That's what gets me.  We'll be somewhere that only has Pepsi products, let's say.....and they ask if you want a Coke.  You don't even carry Coke, you moron.

There may have been a time back in my parent's childhood when it may have been referred to as 'pop' (possibly due to the influx of US soldiers that were stationed here in WW2...)

But I think you'd get a quizzical look if you asked for a 'pop' in this day and age!

My fave is Diet Cherry Coke (or just about anything with cherry).

Funny story:  I went to school down in Texas and kept asking my roommate (born & bred Texan) if she wanted a "pop" when I'd go down to the machine.  For the first week or so, she kept giving me strange looks when I'd ask and say "Uh......no thanks" ???  She told me a while later that she thought I was asking her if she wanted to "pump" :o ;D ;D ;D

Same here. I used to buy 2 litre bottles but it got to the stage where I wouldn't even pour it in a glass, I'd just wander off and take the bottle with me.  :-[

Now after I've demolished a case I pretty much think.. ok.. better stop. Beer time.  ;D

I'm not sure why it's only women that are warned but the report does say that only the females in the study were affected.  I know that women are generally more susceptible to osteoporosis anyway.

However there are other reasons for not drinking vast amounts of cola.  They have been linked to causing mouth and throat cancer in young people.
