Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Since I've almost completely stopped drinking Coke---just one every couple of months or so----and I never drank coffee......

Guess I'll just have to get all my caffeine from chocolate! :D :D

With me it was "soda" or "soda pop". When I grew up it became "coke".

Hmmm....we just said "Coke" for Coke.

Everything else was pop.

Well..in Minnesota it's pop and stays pop even as a grown up, lol...then if I want to specify I say Coke, Pepsi or as a kid, I'd call those two: Plain Pop.. :D

In Georgia they call Coke Co-Cola. I remember going into a McDonalds there....

Girl behind the counter: "Y'all wanna Co-Cola?

Me: "Do I want a WHAT!"

Girl: "A Co-Cola."

Me: "You mean a Coke?"

Girl nods her head

Me: "Oh yeah. OK. Please. :D

Don't think I ever drank Faygo pop, red or otherwise.

I know about it of course, it's still around, I just don't think I ever drank any.

I know about Nehi from watching M*A*S*H* episodes, but I don't know that I ever drank one of them either. :D

Pretty sure I drank grape Nehi as a kid. Got it down at the Shanks corner store. They had one of those huge coke coolers -- full of icy water to keep the drinks cold. :D

As kid, I loved Norka orange pop.

I believe the bottling company was local, and I don't know if they had a wide distribution area. I don't know if they made any other flavors. I don't even know if they're still in business.

But as a kid, I thought that was the best orange pop in the world. :D

Orange Crush is pretty good, That's what I drink now if I want orange pop.

(Late to the party, of course.)

Are any of you lovely folks old enough (or have family members old enough) to remember Cott soda? They also had a soft drink syrup that rivaled Za-rex. (Anybody still remember that?)

But soda was soda. Soda pop was something you saw in print and understood but never actually said. This was in north central Connecticut; I discovered long ago that food & drink names varied usually by region, often by state, sometimes by neighborhood.

*scratches head*

Never heard of Cott soda pop, Morwenna. Must have been a local thing?
