    It's pop. Anyone choosing any other option is a nazi.

    Anyone who calls it soda probably voted trump.

    im a "pop" guy myself, but i have a respect for "fizzy drink" as well. its wrong, but it's not "soda" wrong.

    Actually Trump voters would call it "coke."

    In reality I use the specific name of the specific product I am referencing, but if I have to use a generic term for some reason I call it fizzy drink because that's what my wife calls it and I thought it was cute so I adopted it.

    Soda pop is a fizzy drink.

    Question: Is the answer being a regional difference really a thing? I hear it mythologized that "well, people from the midwest call it so and so" but I hear all the answers used interchangeably, everywhere.

    I hear different accents everywhere interchangeably, too. Because people travel and even move to different places.

    It looks like there is a discernible difference. In retrospect I'm not sure why I questioned it, as regional differences are a thing. Down to and including carbonated beverages.

    Here's a map that changes as more "soda vs pop" surveys get entered.

    The more you know.

    It seems fair to say that fizzy drink has the unquestionably lowest use of the three.

    Oh, itís questionable: Why does that map only show the USA?

    In the UK I think most people would refer to the drink as a brand name or type, but if pushed to label the group fizzy drink would be the clear winner. I remember my grandad calling it pop, and I have heard nobody use the term soda.

    Soft drink is what I grew up calling it. Fizzy drink works too, though. If talking online, I often say soda because everyone knows what it means. Pop seems silly.
