I live just an hour from Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Saying "soda" tends to be frowned upon by your peers here. Whats that like everywhere else? And do you have any other instances of this sort of thing?

In the Northeast of the United States, folks ask for a soda. Throughout much of the U.S. people request a pop. Where it gets weird for me is in the southern states where the generic term for a soft drink is coke. Then again some of my aunts would ask the children if they wanted a soda-pop.

With the variations in drinks these days you almost have to say "do you want a green tea, or an energy drink, or a fima, or maybe a brewski, or just a gatorade?"

I live in Arkansas and if I'm asking for a "soft drink" from a fridge I ask for a soda.

I call it pop. If you say soda, I automatically think of bicarbonate of soda...

Fizzy (sometimes with drink as a suffix) or just the brand name of said drink.

Pop vs soda is whatever.

Coke though, like, wut? Why the hell would I say I wanted Coke if I wanted Mt. Dew? I just don't get in what context it'd ever make sense to refer to all soft drinks as Coke.

The closest I'll ever do that is asking a restaurant if they have coke or pepsi rather than asking them what soft drinks they have, and then ordering mountain dew if they respond pepsi. That's not because I consider Mountain Dew to be Pepsi, it's just that I know any restaurant that has pepsi is also going to have Mountain Dew.

Except coke isn't that overwhelmingly popular even.

It amounts to roughly 42% of all soft drink consumption. It is the best selling soft drinks, Pepsi is only 30%, and Mountain Dew is the top non-cola at 7%, but it's not like Coke has a 80-90% market dominance.

Is dine in/take out also a regional thing? Here most people use for here/to go...except at Chick-fil-A . I mean I was in the Peabody one and that was really weird.

"I hate it when i ask for coke and the waiter brings me pepsi."

Then stop ordering coke at places that don't sell coke products.

Or is too hard to be responsible for yourself and ask whether they have coke or pepsi?
