Am I the only one who knows what pop means?

Am I the only one who knows what pop means or is that just like a chicago thing? Because now I live in south florida and if people ask me what I want to drink I say pop and they look at me as if im from another planet

Answer #1

Where I’m from we call it “Soft Drink” or “Fizzy”, not “Soda” or “Pop”. Soda might be used occasionally, usually on the dessert menu (“Ice Cream Soda” for Ice Cream and your choice of Fizzy for instance, otherwise known as a Spider Drink) or in a drink name (Creaming Soda or Ice Cream Soda). Pop is more commonly referred to here to describe a type/style of music.

It’s funny, when you ask someone if they want a drink, and then you ask them what kind of Soft Drink they want, often I’ve noticed people say “Do you want Coke, Pepsi, L&P, or Lemonade?” - listing brands, except for Lemonade which might be Sprite or 7Up, but they never say Sprite or 7Up, just Lemonade, but always differentiate between Coke and Pepsi or Coke Zero or similar instead of just saying “Cola”.

In the end, it doesn’t matter what it’s called, so long as you end up with what you wanted!

Answer #6

I used to live in Indiana and now I live in Pennsylvania and it’s the same way.

Different regions of the country say different things, as well as have different accents and fluctuations to their voices.

I also call a big rig/mac truck a semi. Here they call them tractor trailers.
