Found this to be pretty accurate..I call my drinks POP!! Sometimes by the name, if the person doesn’t know my flavor.. right now I am off of POP..mostly just ice tea. Lived in Ca. for 20 years, called it by name mostly out there, but people do call it SODA there. Vacationed in Tennessee for most of my childhood, they did call it POP there, but not very often.
HOPE YOUR SPRING IS WONDERFUL!!
