Chow We’re Firmly in “Pop” Country

Strange Maps has a map of the United States divided up by the name people commonly use as a generic term for soda.
I was born in soda country, but Seattle’s definitely pop-centric. Alaska has counties in all three camps, including the Southern tendency to refer to any soda as coke. When I lived in Colorado, I got used to people calling soda “pop,” but I never, ever got used to people who call lollipops “suckers” or bags “sacks.” Those two are just wrong.
