    I feel like a pop is one of those drinks in a can and it fizzles. I call it soda, most of the time, like in general I guess? What kind of drink is that? A soda. Then, I call soft drinks from fast food restaurants. Mostly soda.

    Here in the state of Michigan, US, we've always called any of our soft drinks "pop"

    In Texas, its a Coke, even when you really mean Dr. Pepper or any other brand. But I also head "soda" used more than "pop". In fact, if you ask for a "pop" you're likely to get smacked with with either an open-hand or a towel.

    Pop, Soda, or Soft Drink?

    None of the above...

    I call it disgusting. I cannot remember the last time I sipped one, but I remember thinking "How gross! How do people drink that?"

    A long, long, long time ago, you had to train your body to drink that stuff. Have you read the ingredients? No, no, I mean research papers on those ingredients. The only thing in there that's not unhealthy is the water, but even that's not beneficial. That water's been boiled and put through filters that takes anything out of it that was once beneficial.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup should not be consumed by humans...

    I believe in the Paleo Diet, so I believe corn in any form should not be consumed.

    I am not a big fan of pop/soda/whatever I just wanted to know what everyone called it.  BTW you can get some soda without high fructose corn syrup, or other chemicals.

    I've had the ones with cane sugar but I don't drink those either. I drink filtered water or spring water most of the time. Some juice if it has sugar in it instead of hfcs.
