>I have known a number of people from Kentucky, and Southern Ohio who call it
all "Coke", by the way. As in: "what kinda Coke do you want?"
That really surprises me. I grew up in northern Kentucky and visited
Cincinnati often, and "pop" was always the word of choice. I do seem to
remember hearing "Coke" occasionally when I'd venture further south in
The first time I heard the use of Coke was before moving to KY, when we lived
in Providence - they used it there all the time. I recall being very confused
when I went to a restaurant and the waitress asked: "What kind of Coke would
you like? Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, or Mountain Dew?"
