    Yeah... I had a friend go to Texas and in some areas they called it all 'coke' no matter waht. Lemon coke they gave you a mountain dew. ???

    How many people here have heard of Mello Yellow?

    Places here who sell coke products have it usually, its coke's version of Mountain Dew. but I guess not everywhere has it?

    Well, Mellow Yellow is just starting to come back. It kinda went away for a while, because Mt. Dew beat it off the market. Coke decided to bring it back a couple years ago, so it has been slowly gaining its grounds again. I'm a pepsi fan myself, pepsi products over coke products. but each has their own tastes-- i grew up on pepsi

    In Wisconsin everyone said 'pop'...

    my sister said soda for a while but she's a little conformist and I quickly changed her mind. :^)

    Not anywhere I have been. And I have spent 25 years here. Its soda dammit. If you dont like it, learn a new language (of which it will still be translatable to soda). Besides, who the hell in Wisconsin drinks that crap anyway? We brew like 5 major beers here.

    California, Soda.

    I used to work as Waiter when I was in College and that's why I know some call it "pop".

    If I say Soda, then it's usually a carbonated drink that is either Pepsi or Coke ( depending on the place ). If it's other kind of drink such as Mountain Dew or Orange Soda, I would say the name of it.

    At least, that's how I was taught to be very specific and systematic.

    Florida for about 11 years and it's Soda. When I lived in Texas everything was called Coke.

    Pop Music = Popular Music

    Not really. Now it means music that a label wants to be popular to sell records. How many people buy M. Jackson CD's and he is still the King of Pop.

    Re:Soft drinks

    Welp, I have called it soda, pop, soda pop, coke, et cetera. In Turkey they call dark soft drinks cola and clear ones soda. So, depending on who I am talking to I will use their idea of the correct word for a carbonated beverage. I also prefer to be very specific when asking for a drink. Keeps me out of trouble no matter where I go.

    Cheers
