Behold a fantastic soda vs pop infographic/map
When I was a kid in Southern California we called carbonated soft drinks “coke” in the generic sense. I wasn’t introduced to “soda” until I moved to Manhattan in 1985.
It looks like California has been slowly working in “soda” but not to the near 100% penetration of the North-East.
Does anyone know what they use in the “other” sections of Virginia and North Carolina?
