Soda or Pop: What Do You Call It?

The Great Pop vs. Soda Controversy site uses the Web to gather data on which word North Americans use to describe their carbonated drinks.

Want a soda? Head to the Northeast. How about a pop? Michigan and Ohio are your best bets. Looking to quench your thirst with a Coke? Get on down to the South. If you order a Coke or a pop at the farthest reaches of the U.S., the residents of Hawaii and Maine will know immediately that you're not from those parts. Check out the site's large map to see the distinct differences in carbonated beverage nomenclature.
