This is by far the most interesting map of the United States I've seen in a L-O-N-G time. (At our home, states are mostly referred to as a "red or blue" state. Politically speaking, of course.)
So, what do YOU call a carbonated beverage? Is it a coke? A soda? Pop?
According to the map, my county in Indiana goes by "pop". I think that's what we always called it when I was growing up, so it makes sense to me.
(By the way, my dad always drank Pepsi, but we called it "pop". We kids got one glass a week while we ate a bowl of popcorn and watched The Carol Burnett Show. ....Memories... But I digress...)
Somewhere along the line I started calling it "soda". I think it happened during my short stint as a nanny in New Jersey. Look at New Jersey....the entire state thinks it's "soda".
I noticed there is category for "other", and there are a lot of "other"s in places like North Carolina. What is "other"? Someone from a bright green county please enlighten me!
How does the map match up with what you say at your home? Is it a coke? A soda? Pop? Other?
I'm off to consider other earth- and mind-shattering questions....like what to make for dinner.
