    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.
    Go and make another super crop then or else STFU.

    BMI is something doctors made up. It makes me so joyful to see how little you know

    I vary the term used for soft drinks; brand name, pop, fizzy pop, soft drink but not soda.

    On a side note to The_Manager, the question is what do you call it as oppose to what you think of it so there is no reason to flame cookie meister. also no reason for cookie to tell you to STFU for balance.

    On that note, I'm not sure what I call it. I think sometimes I call it pop, and sometimes I call it soda, but I'm not sure I've ever called it a soft drink. I really have no idea when I call it one or the other.

    Usually call it by its exact name. If you are asking in general I think its just "fizzy drink"

    I'm from England and call it a fizzy drink or pop. 
    If someone came to my house I'd say do you want tea, coffee, pop, juice or water. Juice been diluted or fruit juice.

    I really don't understand how some call it a soft drink because to me a soft drink is a drink which isn't fizzy but each to there own, we all have different words for things.

    Alright, well maybe someone alive of that generation. But really it's generally known that Texans say Coke for soda. The kids might just not be using it as much anymore. 

    Many from Garland and Dallas from my own experience definitely do.

    As I've been taught Royal English, I call them soft drinks or fizzy drinks. 
    I've also heard the term 'soda pop' in US English which wasn't mentioned.

    I've used many terms, "soda" and a "cold drink" are more common for me to say though.
