QotD: Back where I'm from…

Soda? Cola? Pop? What do you say? Any other regional words that set you apart?
Question submitted by Gladys.

Soda, like what Costanza wanted to call his kid. While we're on the subject, I have found that people don't know birch beer here in the south. Or sarsaparilla.

  1. Soda, now. When I was growing up in Nashville I often heard "cold drink" (pronounced "code drink"). In more southern and more rural areas "Coke" was a generic word referring to sweet carbonated beverages in general.

  2. It depends on the situation. When I'm being the big sister I say Coco, when I'm being the young lady I say Cola.

    Note: Thank you for the add. I added you back.
