1Beverage
1depends on what brand it is
1"diet-something" [expressed exactly like that regardless of brand - occasional alternate "Large-cola"]
1I use the term pop, but sometimes say soda-pop which is common as well.
1Coke soda
1I SAID POP IN PA BUT CHANGED TO SODA WHEN I MOVED TO RHODE ISLAND DUE TO EXTERME PEER PRESSURE
1Soda...Only those idiots from Western PA say POP
1I use pop when I'm in PA and I use soda when I'm in most other places.
1phosphate
1SODA, Only the hicks from western PA say Pop, giving us people from the Philly region a bad name
1Its COKE when referring to either Coke or pepsi (because as we all know Coke is soooo much better than Pepsi~therefore, Coke is your first preference)...Your only allowed to say "Pop" if your from Canada or Michigan
1Liquid pleasure
1I use to always say Pop, until I went to college in Providence, then everyone wondered what that was, so now its soda.
1pop where I grew up, Western PA (rules) and soda now that I live in Misery (oops, Missouri). Pittsburgh ROCKS, Philly is the town giving PA a bad reputation!!
1Soda (Pop raised me)
1Coke is a soda just like Sprite is soda. Coke is just that - - a Coke, a brand of soda. Here in the city, I don't think I've ever heard it referred to as "pop".
1"Soda" for most types of soft drinks "pop" if it was cherry, orange, or grape. Faygo Red Pop, for example.
1POP!!! and yeah i no im an "idiot" from western pa. woooohooooooooo
1ok...so im a hick or a idiot if im from western pa and say pop now???? heck, i think we are more civilized out here than you will ever be.
1Coke when referring to a cola drink (even Pepsi), soda with everything else
1Pop, it is called pop in erie cuz we have a colonial dialect, it comes from back in colonial days when they put cocaine into it, so it "popped" when you drank it... and no im not a hick and ur an idiot if you think saying "phosphate" a different way makes you a hick
1bubbly!
1the actual name of the drink
1Okay, so I'm a hick from Western PA, but I still say "soda." But if we're such hicks and Philly is so civilized, why does Philly get so angry?
1Where is Philadelphia again? Hasn't it fallen into the ocean yet? Soon, I hope. By the way, just so you don't show your ingnorance Philly, it's POP.
1When at a resturant I say may I have a Coke. To which the wait staff say (if they only have Pepsi products) "Is Pepsi okay? " I prefer Coke over Pepsi. When at home in, lovely, Pitsburgh I ask the kids. "Would you like a pop? " By the way Philly back off, who has a safer city and lower crime rate? Not you.
1My family and i moved here to pittsburgh in 1968. And it is "pop"!!
1it's a soda originally soda pop some ppl chose either half of which and now it's a scandal. What's even more funny is if you ask to break a twenty by asking for it anyway as long as they put 5 singles with it, in Erie Pa you will get back 4 fives and no dollar bills.
1Soda- I stopped calling it Coke ever since people started giving me funny looks when I say "I like coke"
1(I actually use Pespi as my default word since I prefer Pepsi products. My question is what is so wrong with Philly.....In case you hadn't noticed the only people bashing in Pennsylvania are from the sticks not from the city, so really who needs to grow up?)
1Far out!!! Never figured I'd see a Philly / Pittsburgh clash ever in my life (except baseball). Chill, Pittsburgh -- we like ya out here in Philly. I've been to Pittsburgh -- don't remember any hicks there, but I heard a lot of "pop". What's with "coke" , you goofy Southerners??
1Philly, Pittsburgh - Can't we all just get along and call it SODAPOP!
1When referring to the "brown" drinks, I call it coke......any other type is called soda. My husband has family from the altoona and pittsburg area, and they call it pop....I find that very funny....sorry about that
1Mix
1Mix...I am a confirmed Jack Daniels drinker..its a mix
1I like so many others have changed during my 32 years. I grew up in Pittsburgh where everyone uses the term pop. I then went to college in Boston where the preferred term is soda, or the more colloquial "tonic" (absurd but true). Fortunately, I had a roommate from Pittsburgh and another from Minneapolis and we created a vocal minority to defend pop. Sadly, I then went to graduate school in St. Louis, Missouri where teh literate minority says soda as well. Alas, I now use both terms so as not to create social unrest.
1Yo Pitt.. chill out --if we are so uncivil do u see us keep on botheren u? NO! In the mean time us Philly people do call it Soda because it used to be SODApop.. we took the first half... and by the way my brother now lives in Pitt and i like it very much there... but u are surrounded by nothing and u all were mean to me for saying Soda and when i didn't understand POP... so for the last time CHILL OUT and don't tell us we're not civil.. we can show u uncivil if u really want (but hey it's all good)
1Zeus
1Pop. Philadelphia is for geeks.
1pop, soda has ice cream in it
1I used soda-pop alot. For sure in places where ice cream soda was sold. Otherwise, soda. Since I'm an Ohio Buckeye for almost 14 years I now say "pop" or the "Pop Police" will be after me. Go Owls, Go Lions (except when the Buckeyes are playing you) and Go Buckeyes! Yeah, I sold out. However, it's still EAGLES AND PHILLIES ALL THE WAY!
1Hyndman PA we say POP. But we prefer to drink BEER!!!
1Pop is right and so is redding up, gum band, and dahn tahn.
1Hmmm, let's see...Philly versus half the state of Pennsylvania. Gee, I wonder who is more important? Duh! I say soda, everyone else I know says pop. They both come from soda-pop, so either one is right. I have never heard "coke" before. That one seems a little strange. Philly get off it. I've been there, it really isn't anything to brag about. You're not that important. Come back down to earth.
1Co'-Cola
1I say "Coke" if I mean Coke. If it doesn't matter, I say "some sort of carbonated beverage."
1Gassy sugar water
1Vanilla Coke
1what is your deal pitt? Philadelphia is the saving grace of PA, if it werent for philly the rest of the state would be nothing but farms. Pitt is nothing but a very high rape rate (the highest in the country, who has the worse city now?). There is nothing at all wrong with Philadelphia, there is nothing at all wrong with a lot of farms, they are just different (it just so happens that philly is superior to the rest of the state). There is quite a lot to brag about here, and if you really want to live, maybe you should trade in your tractor and come live a real life where the people are real, there are no cornfields and people say SODA.
1SODA!!! "Pop" is who you borrow an extra $20 from. Pittsburgh?!? The term is used in Pgh is irrelevant. Remember, they're only one generation removed from West Virginia.

1Its Soda.Here in Minnesota they all say Pop, I tell them I only have one Pop and he's in New Jersey!

1woa Dude we are so not like WV, dont even go there! and its Pop, even the damn canadians can see that!
1It's SODA, and the Flyers do NOT suck
1Hey Pit and Philly chill out!! Cuz both of ya suck.. I'm right smack in the middle of yall in lil Altoona,Pa.. We say " pop" some say "soda" but who really cares its juss a stupid word.. It means the same thing..and wuts up wit " Coke"?? people that say "Coke" are u hicks? do u need to go back down to VA?? come on..
1Yes, i am from Picksburgh.. I speak piksburghese, I say sammitch, and gumbands, I DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT SODA IS! so as long as yinz wanna know.. its pop, n'at
1I am from Upstate NY on the PA border... it is Soda here. When I was in Pittsburgh for school, I heard a person in line at a Rite-Aid say, "Can you grab me a Coke while you're back there?" To which her friend responded, "Which kind?" The first person said, "I don't care, Sprite orange whatever..." That was odd!!! lol
1jared is a hoe
1Pop, soda is for people living in the past, like philly. People in Philly are assholes, I know, I goto school here.
1All you hicks in Pitt You SUCK BOOOOOTY! By the way, it's a really lovely city. My sister goes to school there. PHILLY is the schiznat biznatches!!!! (wooder ices) WAhhooo, yo.
1Pop. It's Central PA we should all be making fun of. Pittsburgh and Philly, Unite! CRUSH CHAMBERSBURG.
1I'm from johnstown PA. (YES, that is in WESTERN PA) and we say soda, although i've heard people say pop here. NOT EVERYONE IN WESTERN PA IS A HICK! Although there are a lot of hicks here.
1Soda--there's a very valid reason why Pittsburgh's population has been declining since 1950--nobody wants to live there!!!!!!!
1POP -Altoona, PA
1Fizzy Giggle
1Where i work if someone comes in and asks for a Cherry Soda.. they are gonna get Cherry flavoring mixed in soda water with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top..... if they ask for a pop they will get Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Etc. therefore its POP!
1I lived in NY for 17 yrs. I now go to school in Monaca PA.... and guess what? I STILL CALL IT SODA. Its called soda because more people are pressured to call it soda and not pop. YEAH SODA
1Grew up in Long Island New York and now I go to school near pittsburgh where they say "pop." My mission here is to get everyone to call it soda because that is the right word for it!!!!!
1question...i call it "soda" but what about club soda? do you call it club pop?
1Its SODA not pop. To all the Pittsburgh haters, whose city has a more historical background, and whose well known.....damn sure isn't Pittsburgh. It's Philly baby!!!
1I am From Rockville Centre NY and I SAY SODA!!!!! PITTSBURGH IS GOING DOWN!!!!!!
1I think it's really ignorant when people say that "pop" makes you sound like a hick. I'm certainly not a hick. I don't live in the country and I'm not uneducated. I say pop, but if you say soda then i'm okay with that. I might tease you about it, but really it doesn't matter to me. It's no reason to get upset. On the other hand, I really don't understand calling everything "Coke". That just doesn't make sense. Coke is a specific kind of soda pop.
1If you look at the map, you will see that Western PA "pop" folks are actually akin to those in Ohio, West Virginia and other Mid-Western abyss States. They were settled by the pioneers who couldn't keep on walking to California. If they had kept walking they would probably be calling it soda now like we do in the East.
1There are lower crime rates in Pittsburgh because it's a MUCH smaller city with LESS PEOPLE! Besides, who wants to live in a city where they put french fries on sandwiches and salads too? And you say "pop" isn't weird?

1Soda and you people keep bashing philly. I am from Hazleton in Luzerne county and we all call it soda. So this just proves that you pittsburgh people are no less ignorant than philly people.
1All I have to say.. I am a proud Western PA hick (come on admit it.... we are)... but think of it this way... it is technically Soda Pop... and when do we ever call thinkgs by their adjective....

1Being from south western PA naturally itís pop hereÖ and no Philly we arenít ignorant or uneducated (lol) I do agree with the comment about adjectives, even though I'm not sure soda is an adjective in this case. Besides, itís faster to say pop!! Oh yeah, and by the way, according to morganquitno.com Philly is the 320th safest city where Pittsburgh is 301st out of 354 cities. So we are still better!!!
1for you philly people out there, don't you think that it is funny that you are one of the worst cities to live in, because i do lol, and by the way its POP!!!

1Ok Mr. Eagle's fan.... I just have one question. Who is goin to the Superbowl?!?!?! Damn straight it isn't those stupid Eagles, because everyone knows us "pop" lovers and hick's can kick any philly white ass!!!!
1I think anyone who wrote, "Soda," or, "pop," and any argument for it in the, "other," section should be castrated, and forced to sign their life over to the government, and say they will never adopt children, or go into the foster-care program. If they aleady have kids, they should be eaten. As for me...I call it by whatever kind of carbonated drink I want. No general termanology. But...as for the rest of you...Philly owns your soul.

1I used to say "pop", but I live near DC now, and here it's "soda". I still remember the greate debates we used to get up to at PSU, with the Western PA people all saying "pop" and the Eastern PA people all saying "soda". One exchange I had frequently with a friend at the time was "Pop is what Rice Krispies do! (him)", and "Soda has ice cream in it! (me)".

1I say "soda" because if you walk into any stoer in the country, they have a "soda" aisle. I've never seen a "pop" aisle! I truely do not care for philly, they gave us the greatest con-artist in PA, Ed Rendell. He's nothing mroe than a shister used car dealer thug.

1I don't know where all this Philadelphia hostility came from, but Philly it sounds like Pittsburgh is just jealous of Philadelphia and that they aren't nearly as awesome as Philadelphia. It's soda, btw.

1It's SODA, and maybe if you dumb steel-heads out there in Pittsburgh didn't skip high school to work in a dying industry you would know that. Philly is the one reason anyone even KNOWS about PA. Come visit if you want to see a REAL city and in the mean time stfu with the pop stuff.
