    Bull. A Coke is a Coke. A Pepsi is a Pepsi. A Dr. Pepper is a Dr. Pepper. I do know some folk who refer to all sodas as "Soda Water", though.
     
  3. Here it is POP

    Howdy,

    In the UP here it is called Pop. You order a pop and then tell em Dr Pepper etc....

    But more confusing, I live on the WI Mich UP border and in Wisconsin it is soda.

    Sometimes you ask a friend ya wanna stop for a coke, but mostly it is lets stop for a soda in Wi and ya wanna pop in the UP.

    When in the south, I always order a coke, then tell em what I really want......

    :nod:
     
  4. Can't have BBQed chicken without a coke. Two great taste that go great together.

    Vanilla flavored coke? Huh. Its Not the real thing!!

    Yeah! Had one of them back in the old days...guess it has been about two months now. I'm on the wagon because of Dr. orders. I've got a lot of catching up to do ASAP.

    Gosh, I'm having one right now. Probably will lead to another, then another. After a while, I'll still be on this forum and my wife won't like me much.......But when she asks, it was just a few cokes!

    Yeah..."just a couple drinks", the standard answer when asked how many did you have? (ha) That could mean anywhere from two to two dozen. Who's counting when you're having fun.:D

    "Just two beers sir? How big were they?" That's my rebuttal.....

    New Liquor Labels

    Oneastrix: Here's something that speaks to the problem of drinking: (Enjoy reading them as you drink your beer)(ha)
    ---------------------------
    New Liquor Labels

    Due to increasing products liability litigation,
    American liquor manufacturers have accepted the
    FDA's suggestion that the following warning
    labels be placed immediately on all containers:

    you wondering what the hell happened to your bra.

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make
    you think you are whispering when you are not.

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol is a major
    factor in dancing like a retard.

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause
    you to tell your friends over and over again that you
    love them.

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause
    you to think you can sing.

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead
    you to believe that ex-lovers are really dying for you

    Well when you live just outside of Atlanta, home of Coca Cola, every soft drink is a Coke. One of the few exceptions is if you go to Taco Bell since they only serve Pepsi.

    As far as I'm concerned a Coke is a Coke, a Pepsi is a Pepsi. I used to call it all Coke when I was younger but I guess I got stationed in Cali for a bit too long :D
     
  17. soda here in Southern Maryland. Make mine Royal Crown, thanks. Oh and a Moonpie too!
     
  18. Depends

    Among the CIO's I grew up with you'd say, "let's stop and get a Coke." Or, "if you don't stop drinking so many Cokes, your teeth are gonna fall out by the time you're twenty."

    It was the generic term for soda pops. But at the window, you specifically asked for whichever one you wanted.

    By the way, CIO's are "California-Improved Okies."

    A bit of useless trivia.:confused:
