Default What word do you use to refer to carbonated drinks?

I was just in a discussion with a few people in the shoutbox about this, and I thought it would be interesting to see what you guys call it. I heard it varies within different regions, so share any information you may have about what your region may call it, etc.

I call it soda, because when I was a kid I watched a lot of movies where they called it soda.

Most people around here call it pop.

Pop. From my understanding, in general, it's Canada = pop, USA = soda. Not sure about anywhere else.

Nah, most of the South is pop too, or at least where I've been. Except when I lived in NC, and they called it all sorts of weird things. I heard "tonic" and "dope" a few times from the older people there.

This is the map I was referring to.

I call it soda

you were right about the northerners thing but just not people on the east coast.

I mixed up coke with pop.

I don't really have an umbrella term I use... I usually say fizzy drinks, or I'll just call it the name of the specific drink in question.
