    ...From the UK, I don't think we've ever used Soda or Pop... I think they tried to make 'pop' catch on here once in the nineties but really have you ever heard a brit say it? Sounds dumb. Soda also sounds a bit pretentious and strange when I say it, my accent makes words like that sound awkward. Got some odd looks when I dined in America when ordering (yeah I wasn't in the 'tourist areas' so it was a strange affair)
    Worked in alot of places in the UK and Pop is very prevalent.

    I live in England (You didn't really think I lived in the Howling Fjord, did you? ) so most people where I live call it pop. Children generally call it just "Fizzy Drink". But nobody here calls it Soda. I think it's an american thing

    EDIT:

    This, actually. But what I meant before was strictly between saying soda and pop.

    Hm, should have specified that yes We do specify on other labels like Pepsi, or Fanta.
