I grew up in Houston, Texas and despite the fact that I seldom drank
anything but Dr Pepper, it was (and still is) "coke"...note SMALL "c"
.and yes, cokes come not only in Dr Pepper flavor but 7-up, ginger
ale, Pepsi, Mr. Pibb etc. If really, really pressed for a generic name,
they are soft drinks, but you get weird looks when you say that!
