  1. I grew up calling it soda then lived in the midwest for 15 yrs. I wonder what you and your siblings call it now since you were all exposed to both.

  2. Both? You mean all three! And then some: Soda, pop, Coke, tonic …

    I call it soda–as I learned as a kid in Connecticut. Pressure from friends in Terre Haute didn’t make me change.

  3. ‘tonic’ in and around Boston

    I associate this word with my aunt. She always called it tonic. I’ve always called it soda. Which makes sense since I’m from Boston.
