Pop. My nephew from Tennessee thinks that's funny. "You northerners and your 'pop'", he says.

I've lived so many places that I'm confused but I think when pressed I call it "soft drinks". I also seem to remember using "soda pop", maybe when I still lived in the Oklahoma-Arkansas area.

And definitely when I was growing up in Oklahoma, it was grape soda, orange soda, cream soda, etc.

I say "soda," because I grew up in northern California. When I moved to the Cleveland area in 1987, I learned there was another word for it: "pop." My new friends though I was weird because I said "soda." Even after 24 years in the Midwest I still say "soda."

Pop until I moved to NJ for three summers. Then it became soda. It's been soda ever since - never went back to pop.

Here in Michigan I call it pop. I snicker a bit to hear others call it soda it just sounds funny to me.

Coke! Although I have a hard time saying it here in Michigan as the generic term. I grew up in one of those red counties (the 50% range) in eastern New Mexico, and we always said "want to go out for a Coke?" but nobody actually got Coca-cola (more likely a cherry-lemon-lime-vanilla-cream-sprite, at Sonic, while cruisin' the Main Street drag...)

I've just found your lovely website while looking for a list of high pectin fruits. Your natural pectic recipe is really useful. I have been given a bag of grapes and want to make some chutney or jam with them - so your advice is really useful. Many thanks.

I have just left a comment on your lovely website - am not sure whether it will come up twice! But thanks again for the information on natural pectin - this will be very useful.
