    I was speaking to a boyo this evening and they call, according to my source, all fizzy drinks POP!!!

    As we have a fairly broad representation of the UK POPulation on this forum, I was wondering what you all call fizzy drinks...

    Pop works perfectly well up here in Mancland.

    I remember my dad called water "corporation pop". So there you go.

    Whatever happened to the 'pop van'?
    You could get 3 bottles of watery pop for about 20p delivered to your doorstep

    Alpine and Corona are brands that spring to mind.

    Remember when as a kid you'd gloat over the words 'with real beer' on a can of Top Deck Shandy?

    Pop

    Though my mother always called it 'mineral water' / minerals which I believe used to be the name on old fashioned menus. That confused the hell out of me cos she'd ask me if I wanted some mineral water and I'd presume she had some Evian in.....

    Well I don't know any ladies who drink L & L, only men....in the pub that is...it used to be lager and black when I was young before I grew out of my sweet tooth.

    Easier to order in public than Cherry Brandy LOL (unless you are Prince Charles that is, who famously was caught in a pub under age ordering Cherry Brandy) I'd have that that alone was enough to get the publican's suspicions up!

    Does anyone remember 'QUATTRO' from the 80's?

    It was kind of a mix, pineapple, orange, lemon etc. plus lots of unknown chemicals, as well as plenty of fizz.

    It came in a white can with a futuristic looking logo on the front.

    God, I loved that stuff!

    Quattro was ace.

    Fizzy drinks are called fizzy drinks!

    We kind of referred to it by name. Orange-ade (sp) Cola, Lemonade etc etc.

    Cream Soda...Hmm.....
