I know I know, we’ll all defend our name for fizzy drinks until we die.  But where I come from, it’s called pop.  Because that’s what it does.  It pops.  And it looks like 80-100% of the folks in my home county (Sandusky County, Ohio) agree with me.  Now, call me crazy, but there’s an awful lot of blue on this map.  but I am also aware that it appears in many sparsely populated areas.

But on this Friday, I will proudly order a pop from any restaurant, and I will drink a pop any time of day.  And if you ask me for a soda or a Coke, I’m just gonna say, “You mean a pop?”

Happy Friday!

    that’s Funny Erica…When I was in the Marine Corps, Everybody always called it Soda…I called it POP. Like all Technical Marine Corps Terms though I finally succumbed and for years I called it soda too. We even had a “Soda Mess” (a place at work to go buy a soda and get a hot dog). When I returned back to Ohio, people would look at me funny when I asked for a soda….My cousins in “the south” call everything “Coke” weather it’s actual Coke or spite or even Pepsi…its funny…

    I’ve always called it “soda pop,” since soda is what it is and pop is what it does.
