soda vs. pop

Here's a map of the U.S. with colors depicting common words used for a soft drink. I've always used soda and honestly I can think of only two people who call it pop regularly: my step-mother and my friend L, both of whom are from the mid-west.

Where I come from we call it whatever is written on the can or bottle. Although I've known many soccer-mums who refer to it as "fizzy cordial".
