Soda - Pop

Where you're from when you refer to a soft drink, do you call it "soda" or "pop"? Please include your location with your response.


I live in Ohio and everyone I know calls it "pop". But an ex of mine who was from texas said they call it "soda" there and laughed when he used the term "pop". From what I've been told it's supposedly a Great Lakes regional thing... I was just wondering how true that actually is.

I live in Atlanta, GA, and around here the default for a tasty carbonated beverage is "Coke." This is regardless of what brand or flavor you actually want.

Second to "Coke" is "soda." I'm from Western New York (west of Buffalo, along Lake Erie)originally, where "pop" is the default, and I get strange looks down here whenever I use the word.
