Pop vs. Soda


One of the intresting things we have noticed since moving back to Indiana from Mukwonago is the fact that people here call Soda Pop "POP" you can walk into any grocery market and ask the person behind the counter..."Excuse me, where do you keep all your pop" and they will know exactly what you're talking about. Unlike Mukwonago, if you asked for the "pop" they would think you're loopy. So what do you say? Pop? Soda? Coke? or other...which is my other quesiton...what is other??

yup..so being from good old mukwonago...i definitely say soda.
but my grandma lives in michigan (clarkston) and they say pop over there.
and i'm working at this concession stand in mukwonago right now..and this girl came up and asked for a pop and i was like, "What??" and she repeated herself..my friend had to help me understand that soda is pop and yeah..kinda confusing.
love you!!

Well, anything is good, but I just ask for a specific drink or drinks. For example, "I'd like some Coke(Coka-Cola, not cocaine(I don't actually say that, but they know)), a Mountain Dew, and a Sobe."

So, what I'm REALLY interested in is WHY you paied attention to that-it sounds like something I would do! Oh, well.

P.S. Really, gimme a sobe!
