The answer to this question is of course "No. It is not okay."

It's better.

RE: Soda = worst thing ever?
In a restaurant (make that nearly every restaurant)...do you have Pepsi? Is Coke okay - ummm, no. If it were, I'd have asked for Coke. Undecided

In Iowa, it was called pop...but with that definite midwestern pronunciation. More like 'pawp'.

In SC, I had to learn to ask for a soda. But I did hear a lot of people referring to fizzy soft drinks as Coke - even if it was really a 7-Up they wanted.

There is also a line in the states above which when you ask for sweet tea and they say - we don't have sweet tea but we have sugar. Ummmm - not the same but thanks. Bring me a Pepsi...oh, you have Coke - no that's not okay, I'll just die of thirst. Dodgy

RE: Soda = worst thing ever?
I grew up in the south calling it soft drink or cola or soda, never pop.

Nowadays I mostly drink fizzy water, but part of me misses Tab, a key source of caffeine during my college years. Even though Tab was peculiarly nasty tasting, there was something addictive about it.

I do hate it when I order a Diet Coke in a restaurant and it turns out to be one of those hellholes that serve only Pepsi products. "Is Diet Pepsi okay?" No. Not ever.

I don't care for any diet drinks...artificial sweeteners are nasty.

But, it's blasphemy to speak ill of the Pepsi. Dodgy

As much as I prefer Pepsi over Coke, I think Diet Coke is better than Diet Pepsi (not that either one is actually good).

Tab is just too disgusting to even contemplate.

Laugh out load My teenage son would agree with you 100%!

Both Coke and Pepsi, diet and full-sugar versions, taste way too sweet to me these days. I find Pepsi even sweeter than Coke, so I just can't stand it. And those Pepsi-only places never seem to have decent coffee.

From the perspective of someone who actually enjoys good food, this is like watching a conversation between cheese connoisseurs where one side is arguing for Velveeta and the other side is adamant in their preference for Kraft singles.

If I were going to treat myself, maybe some obscure brand of cream soda or something.

Soda and soft drink seem more common.

RE: Soda = worst thing ever?
I like root beer from some of the lesser known local companies. Yeah, I know, it's very sweet but.... it makes me a sweet person.

I've never had a sarsaparilla but I'm not so sure that it isn't the same thing as root beer.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
