Well because they invented it so, it's a given they would use the brand as a generic term.

I call anything like Coca-cola, "coke" (pepsi, rc, etc.)

And every other beverage by it's brand name. If I had to say anything, I guess it would be soda. But I'd never say "Hey, can I have a soda?" because that lacks detail...

This has always confused me, I usually call the drinks by their name themselves.

If I ever call them as a collective drink I just say carbonated beverage.

>This has always confused me, I usually call the drinks by their name themselves.
Literally everyone does.
This is why the whole "lol they call everything coke? how do they know what people want?" is silly.
These are just names people give when they're talking about soda in general, if you're going to order you naturally say what you want.
>>
I'm from the UK, we call it semen over here

Ohiofag here, we call it pop here in flyoverland. I've always called it "soda pop" though.

Everyone around here (center state) says soda. I know weirdo Pittsburgians say pop, but I refuse to believe more people say pop over soda.

I moved from east of the Appalachians to Pgh and I went from saying soda to saying pop in less than 3 months. Idk what the fuck happened. I hate saying pop, but it stuck with me. It sucks.

In Australia Coke is a general catch-all for colas or other soft drinks. But you also hear fizzy, cordial, lemonade/sprite etc

Didn't start calling it Coke until I discovered it triggered non-Southeners. Always grew up calling it soda, now I call it Coke.
>>
Grew up in MO, can confirm they call it soda 99% of the time. Excluding a decent chunk of KCfags.

Every time I see these survey maps I can never figure out why they share the same word as the coasts and not their surroundings.

Maybe it's an older person thing. A lot of younger people, especially in the cities, have lost the Southern accent along with most of its mannerisms.

I live in PA, near Philly, and everyone I know says soda.

I think it's a region thing. People from Pittsburgh probably say pop, while near Philly they say soda. Western and Eastern PA may as well be two different states.

Had we had currently technology back then (this was well before most social media in general, for example), I'm pretty sure the slap would've gone viral. Also, pretty sure the server was immediately fired.

I have to say that giant room of "Coke products from around the world" thing was awesome. Why don't American companies bring international flavors over here?

It's soda. "Coke" is a shortened term for the specific brand "Coca-Cola", and "pop" is a slang term for father.

I'm from Ohio, and everyone makes such a big deal about calling it pop. It's incredibly annoying considering the fact I call it soda or pop (because it's the same fucking thing) and everyone has to point out that Ohio calls it pop and act like it is their thing and they are right about it. So much that if someone calls it soda, they get triggered and correct them that it is called pop.

What I don't get is their argument for it. I understand that people who call it soda can argue that pop is an onomanpea and doesn't serve as a proper word for the drink, but when retarded Ohioans try to correct people, they have nothing to back up why it should be called pop other than "that's what we call it". Apparently in their terms "soda" isn't a word and serves no definition. It really fucking stupid. I hate how everyone in Ohio thinks everything about hem is special.

From Texas.

I grew up using coke as a catch all term for carbonated soft drinks, but around high school I consciously decided to stop doing that and call them soda because calling Dr. Pepper and Pepsi 'coke' just started to seem retarded to me.

In retrospect, it's not that weird. Coca-cola was invented in Georgia, and dominated the southern market so much that it was considered an iconic southern beverage for decades. It's not that strange that it became a proprietary eponym like kleenex, jacuzzi, rollerblade, etc.

I live in Florida so we say soda like any civilized people would. I was once at a barbecue spot in inland FL where it actually feels pretty country. One of my friends asked for a Sprite and after a 2 minute exchange with the waitress, she finally figured out what he wanted was a "white coke"
