I'm apologizing in advance for this super controversial statement, but Coca-Cola is WAY better than Pepsi. I'm sorry but that's the way I see it. There are times at restaurants or bars when I ask for a Coke and they say, "Is Pepsi okay?" I sometimes want to respond with, "Is Monopoly money okay?" Today, it’s officially National Have a Coke Day. It is the anniversary of the first day Coca-Cola was on sale at a pharmacy in Atlanta in 1886. Coke is 133 years old today!
According to a new survey from YouGov, it found that 1 in 9 Americans aren't necessarily talking about Coca-Cola when they say they "want a Coke." Over 3,000 Americans were asked what word they normally use for a carbonated beverage and the results are: 11% use "Coke" as a generic term for all soft drinks, 56% say soda, only 13% of us say it the correct way,Pop, 11% say Coke, 8% say soft drink, 5% say soda pop (Like it's the 1950s), and 2% say fizzy drink. Who the hell calls it a fizzy drink?!
What you say probably depends on where you grew up! 73% of people from the Northeast and 63% in the West say soda, while 41% in the Midwest say pop, and just 39% say soda. Having family from the South, I can tell you that the term “soda” is fairly popular down there. 52% of southerners say it, and 16% say Coke. And it seems like they all think “pop” is wrong! NO YOU ARE WRONG.
