The debate goes on! http://www.popvssoda.com/

What do you call it from where you are located: Pop or Soda?

Soda. Soda Pop.....whatever. Fizzy juice...nice eddy. And meh...don't drink the stuff. Just rots your teeth away. Not healthy for you either. I drink water and tea all the time instead. Good for me...especially green tea.

I call it pop. I've noticed that in North America, most Canadians call it 'pop' and most Americans call it 'soda'. It's used that way in advertisements, as far as I know, as well.

Okami is mainly right with what he stated since I notice the excat same thing on this side of the country when I talk with canadians or americans and reference pop.

Well where I am located, NJ, most people call it soda. But where I will live in the end of December, they call it "brus" (a norwegian word, directly translates to the soundword for sodabubbles (if that makes sense))

We just call it Coke, even if it's like Mountain Dew or some other type (MD owns you!!). But soda is also used, more often then pop is anyways.

Some people call it "soda", others "pop", still others "cold drink."
Down south they call it "Coke" (and not just Coke, but any old drink).
Distill it to its essence and you'll still end up confused:
It's either "empty calories" or "vacant BTU's."

We call it "pop" here, and from what I've heard we're pretty much the only U.S. state that does.  But we get enough out-of-staters on campus that I'll still hear "soda" used frequently.

Hmm, I think around here the term "coke" is used the most for general reference.
But normally the drink name is used.

In upstate New York, it's "Soda," but move down past albany, and it becomes "pop" (pronounced "pawp"). And yes, Coke does get you Coca-Cola.

Has anyone tried Moxie before?

Just about everyone around here where i live (including me) call them "drinks" or "dranks". Depends on if your in a hurry to say the word. Actually, I refer to everthing as a "drink".
