Dr Pepper
I was in TN a few years back and out at dinner with some friends when the waitress came and asked if she could get us drinks I responded with I will have a coke please. She said what flavor? I was dumbfounded. My buddy who had been living there for a few years is laughing and tells me "coke" means soda. Still trying to put it together in my head I look back at the waitress and say I will have a sweet tea instead.

Pop or sometimes to clarify, soda pop.


I can see how it is called coke in the south. Here, Kleenex is facial tissue and Styrofoam is any kind of foam product from cups to insulation.

We call it soda in the northeast. I have also heard it called tonic.

I was born and raised in Memphis. Coke was the general term for soft drink. After I moved north, it became soda or pop with the added sentence of "coke or Pepsi, whatever you've got", when ordering in a restaurant.

Sometimes Dad would invite me to ride with him to the service station when he got the truck serviced. I would jump at the chance because I knew that he would eventually ask “Son, you want a belly wash?” Of course I always did. I would usually choose a R.C. Cola or a Nehi Orange because the bottles were bigger. Sometimes he would also ask “You want some Nabs (peanut butter crackers made by Nabisco) to go with that?"

That made a really good day!

There are a lot of Trade Names that have become generic names in use: Band Aids, NiCad and Velcro come to mind.
