I tend to use the word "Pop", because I reside in the Midwest. So it's part of our lingo. However, people down south use the word "Cola". What if you were down south & wanted a Moutain Dew? Would you still use the word "Cola"? How would that other person knew what you were asking for?

If I wanted a Mountain Dew, I'd ask for a Mountain Dew. If I wanted a coke, I'd ask for a coke. I just call them by their brand names.1

I always called it pop because, I was raised up north. Then when I moved down south they would make a big deal out of me saying pop because, they all called it soda. One guy sad he only heard pop in movies and, books...
I'm so glad I moved back up north.1
