    Aye I think a lot of the world does, In Scandinavia they call it Soda Vand, Spain it is limonada or cola or a fruit drink Con (With) Gas.
    but I call my beer pop too, " just going for a Pop honey." [​IMG] :thumbsup:
    I wonder if we will uncover the root of the name though?

    Anyone out there. Why do we call Soft Drinks POP?

    It's just coke in Texas....or soda....but NEVER soda-pop (I heard that a lot in Indiana). It appears there is an entire website dedicated to this debate.

    Pop vs. Soda Stats
    Go figure.

    My guess would be because of the "pop" sound when you open it?
