Sorry to add another dimension to this issue. A fellow military person from Massachusetts in the 1960's era, referred to "pop" or "soda" as "tonic." He regretted the use of "tonic" for a long time thereafter. Poor guy was ridiculed for several months, all in fun.

Wow! There are so many more variations than I thought. I love how the Southerners say Coke for any kind of pop/soda. That's cute!

Michiganders love that Faygo Pop! We still catch ourselves saying "thats a case of Faygo" when a ball looks like a homerun in a Tigers game.

As an army brat who grew up in a bunch of different areas of the country, I say soda but most of the time simply refer to it as coke, sprite or root beer. I don't care which brand, I will call Pepsi coke and 7up or Sierra mist sprite. same thing with A &w or dr pepper, to me those are all root beer (and yucky at that).
