I'm from East Tennessee (raised there), born in Jax, Florida, and lived most
of my life in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Always called them all co'cola, or coke - occassionally by their proper name
(Pepsi, Mtn Dew, Dr Pepper, etc).
What Cheryl says is closest to the way it is in the South (the right way,
don't you know?). I've even heard Coke called dope here in the South. We
would get a dope in a poke. (who knows what that one means?) <G>
Pop is my wife's father. Soda is white stuff in the kitchen or pool.
So, da real answer escapes me ;-).
