If it's light colored, I call it soda. If it's dark, it's 'pop'.

What's the use of calling it anything if it never comes when you call it?

None of the above :-P

Soft drink, fizzy drink, or by what it is eg vanilla coke, raspberry, sprite.

We don't really say "soda" round here, cept for "creamy soda". or whatever its actually called

Cheers

I live in a very strange place, where we use soda and pop interchangably, without any noticable bias toward on or the other.

I've been to other parts of the country (I'm a New England Native) where they called all carbonated non-alcoholic beverages coke.  Confused  Didn't matter if it was grape or orange. Rather odd if ya asks me.

That would be here, and yes it is strange and very confusing!  I'm a native of St. Louis, MO, and upon moving here I learned a lot of new words (such as fixin' and coke.)  Any sort of soft drink down here is referred to as a "coke".  When you ask for a coke, the waiter or waitress will most likely say, "What kind?"  

It's going to be horrible when I move somewhere else and ask for a coke, not realizing that they are going to take me seriously, especially since I quit drinking caffeine...

The New England term "tonic" is not in the poll.  It seems to be little used these days, anyway.

I'm a southern belle.   They're cokes.  When you say you're going to go buy cokes, you'll come home with rootbeer, cream soda, big red, sprite, and maybe not even Coca-Cola Classic. :-D

I've never even heard of "coke" referring to anything other than the brown one with caffeine in it :-P

Then again I live in a place where "ketchup" is a crazy word. You say either "sauce" or "tomato sauce", being "tom-ah-toe," not "tom-ay-to".

Hm... trying to think of more examples...

Well when I am buying some type of cola I call it a Coke, but when I am talking about something that isn't Coka-Cola or Pepsi-Cola, I call it a soda.

To clear up everyone's confusion, I have self-appointed myself as Supreme Soft Drink Namer of the World for Life. Here is my easy reference chart:

Cola
Coca-Cola
Pepsi-Cola
anything very similar

Pop
Root beer
Mountain Dew
Coke/Pepsi (yes, they fit in two categories)
darker-colored stuffs

Soda
Creme Soda (blech)
Sprite, 7-Up
lighter-colored stuffs

Hmm. That's my take on it, anyway.

Yep I can understand that one! Coke. Pepsi. Soda (soft drink to me but we mean the same thing)

All this talk is making me thirsty!

Sodie-Pop pronounced SO(long o)-DEE-POP Grin
