Funny Foto Friday: It is Pop

Not funny per-say, but still very interesting in a nerdy kind of a way. Since I am from northwest Iowa, it will always be pop to me. What is it to you? (Poll below)

Beings from Iowa and all myself, I always called it "pop" but when I moved to Colorado, people looked at me like I was from Looneyville. It took me a long time to convert to "soda" but pop will forever be embedded in my heart. I did live for a short stretch Alabama (all my kids were born there actually. Maybe that's the problem with them???) and they all call it "coke" down there...no matter what kind you want, it's all coke. I could NEVER get into that! Gotta love America!
Happy Weekend!

Soda, but I'm pretty sure the rest of my family (from texas) call it coke. And my hubbys family (from virginia) calls it pop.

have a great weekend!

Soda. My elementary gym teacher was from Nebraska and he also called it pop. We thought he was so strange because of that. Our horizons were stretched:)

It's coke. Doesn't matter if if's Coke, Dr. Pepper, Pepsi... it's COKE in the South!!!

Rio said...

It's soda for me. Lived in a part of Michigan for a bit where everyone called it pop. It did not rub off on me but it did change my hubby. Now he calls it soda pop. Have a great weekend!

Mountain Dew. Wait you mean they make other kinds?

I grew up right on the pop/soda border, but I'm a soda person myself...

Hi Adam,
In the Minnesota small town where I grew up we called it pop. Now I call it soda...I am not sure if it is a city vrs country thing? Have a fantastic weekend!!

kilax said...

Of course, my family still calls it pop, but somehow, I picked up soda. Maybe from my husband?

Running Through Life said...

It's definitely pop in Chicago.

Christy said...

POP all the way!!!

I am originally from Ohio, so it has always been "Pop". However, living in South Florida now I have slowly converted to "Soda". (But in my mind I am thinking "Pop" as I say "Soda".)

I think I call it soda, but everyone around here calls it pop. Actually in our house we call it a "special drink." For the kids SD = soda. For me it = wine, beer, alcohol of some sort.

It is totally soda! I'm from that part of WI that says soda and I used to get in fights with people when I went to school in MN. In the yellow part of WI we also refer to drinking fountains as bubblers!

It is weird how references change by geography. I moved from CA to NC and had to adjust: sweet tea? what the crap is THAT?

Running Through Phoenix said...

Carbonated soft drink.

I grew up in northern California for my first 9 years so soda was already written in my dna. I thought those crazy Kansans didn't know what the hell they were talking about.
Now I can easily say soda pop with a smirk.

Living in Georgia, people's heads will literally pop off if you call it anything other that Coke...try working for a worldwide hotel chain that has a contract to carry Pepsi products..."What!?!1! You don't have cokey-cola? This is Jaw-ja!?!1!"

Glenn Jones said...

Meh. You probably also call the can a "washroom". Soda! And it's a bathroom (even though the thought of taking a bath in a public bathroom is kind of revolting...)

Neat Adam! Very cool....

OhMyLaughter said...

Hahaha @Ace. You speak such truth.

I love this. I was born and raised in Richmond, VA and it's soda. It's soda in Washington DC too. (I guess I've never lived far south enough to call everything a Coke).

My Ohio friends are very adament that its pop.

Pam F. said...

LOL @ Snail's comment. It's so true!!!

And to Psyche... sweet tea, my dear, is the world's finest nectar. :) No southern meal is complete without a tall glass of sweet tea with which to wash it down. :)
