Is it Soda? Pop? Coke?


Whether it is soda, pop, or coke depends on where you are from. On this map POP is green, SODA is blue, and COKE is red. I haven't seen any definition dominate Phoenix/Scottsdale.

What do you call carbonated soft drinks? Soda? Pop? Coke? Those are the three most popular generic names for carbonated flavored drinks although for me, "soda" and "pop" are the most common and "coke" is still a name brand.

Growing up in southwest Ohio, we referred to carbonated drinks as "pop" like in, "Would you like a bottle of pop?" When I worked in Kansas City, it was still "pop" but I noticed on visits to St. Louis, it was called "soda." I noticed a lot of guys from the East also referred to it as "soda." In a large part of the South, it is referred to as "coke" possibly because Coca-Cola originated in Atlanta, Georgia in the 1880's and the name has become generic for all soft drinks in he area.

There are also many regional brands of soft drinks. When I used to visit my relatives in Montreal, a popular drink was "spruce beer." It wasn’t beer, it was made from and tasted like pine needles. It doesn’t sound good but it was very tasty. The Canadian cream soda had no coloring like I was used to with my bottles of Barq’s which was pink.

Barq’s was a great brand in the old days. They made several other flavors like root beer and lime. I had a friend who like to drink half of his pink cream soda and fill the bottle back up with a 5 cent bag of Planter’s Peanuts. Yuck, not for me. Barq’s was also unique because, although it was spelled "Barq’s" most people pronounced it "Barges" because they thought the "q" looked like a "g" and every school kid knew that a "u" always followed a "q" (except maybe in a proper name, oops!)

Other popular regional brands include a cherry pop from North Carolina that is supposed to be wonderful called Cheerwine. We used to have Wagner’s Ginger Ale and Dad’s Root Beer in Ohio which were both excellent. We also had Vichy which was terrible, tasted like Alka-Seltzer. Detroit has Vernor’s Ginger Ale which is good but don’t breathe the carbonation, powerful stuff.

There are lots of other brands like Nesbits which made a grape and orange pop, Mission Orange, and they may still make Nehi although I haven’t seen it lately. Back east there is a coffee soda called Manhattan Special and there is Red Ribbon Cherry Supreme out of Pennsylvania. Portland, Oregon has Hotlips Blueberry Soda.

One thing to watch for if you are a Coke lover: Coke is made with fructose which does not have the wonderful flavor of cane sugar sweetening. During Passover in the springtime, Coke uses cane sugar and the bottles are identified by a yellow cap with the circle "U". I’ve had an expert tell me the taste is unbelievably better than the Coke we know. Mexican Coke is supposedly much better too.

I think it was the sugar, cane is much better. Food City and Costco both carry Mexican Coke and I believe it is in glass. Click "Jim's Blog" in the right column of this blog under the clock for a link to my azcentral version of this post. A lot of good responses. Apparently the Passover Coke which is supposed to be the best is in L.A. and doesn't make the Valley. That's a shame!

Brooke Lorren said...

That's disappointing!

I've been looking for Passover Coke for the past several weeks and haven't found it... I guess I can stop looking if they don't even get it out here. I guess I'll try Food City then.

I was planning on filling up my shopping cart too... I don't buy regular Coke any more. I found out that HFCS contains mercury and I stopped buying it.

Jim McAllister said...

Hi Brooke,

L. A. is probably the closest place for Passover Coke. Bummer! They probably only stock it in areas with heavy Jewish populations. Thanks for your comment. Check out more on my blog on azcentral.com

Jim McAllister said...

Brooke,

Correction! I found Passover Coke in Safeway in Scottsdale today. Look for the Jewish food display. They have 2 liter bottles. Good luck!

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

The group provides one [url=http://cungmuachungnhom.com/thoi-trang.html]voucher gia re[/url] for each and every working day in every single of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon performs as an assurance contract employing ThePoint's system: if a distinct amount of guys and women indication up for the offer you you, then the deal turns into accessible to all if the predetermined bare minimal is not met, no a single will get the offer you that day. This minimizes threat for retailers, who can treat the discount codes as quantity reductions as properly as revenue marketing instruments. Groupon can make money by maintaining roughly fifty % the income the buyer pays for the coupon.

For illustration, an $80 therapeutic massage could be acquired by the client for $forty by way of Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would break up the $40. That is, the retailer presents a therapeutic therapeutic massage valued at $eighty and will get about $twenty from Groupon for it (beneath a 50%/fifty% split). Or, if $240 really value of home portray suppliers is obtained by the consumer for $fifty through Groupon, then the organization will get $twenty five and Groupon retains $20 5. The buyer gets the therapeutic therapeutic massage, or the property painting providers, in these illustrations, from the retailer for which they to begin with paid out $forty (or $50) to Groupon. There are specified corporations to which Groupon initially did not provide its solutions, including capturing ranges and strip clubs even so, shooting ranges have been showcased on Groupon.

In contrast to categorized advertising, the service provider does not shell out any upfront cost to take portion: Groupon collects personalized information from well prepared customers and then contacts only these buyers, primarily by each and every day e mail, who could potentially be fascinated in a particular items or supplier.

Groupon employs a substantial number of copywriters who draft descriptions for the discounts showcased by electronic mail and on the web site. Groupon's advertising textual content material for the 'deals' has been noticed as a contributing element to the acceptance of the website, that includes a distinctive mix of comprehensive reality-checking and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's marketplace currently becoming mostly composed of female customers, the delivers are frequently concentrated on the general wellness, health and splendor marketplaces.

There are likely issues with the firm product. For example, a successful deal could quickly swamp a tiny organization with way as well a great deal of clients, jeopardizing a chance that clientele will be dissatisfied, or that there will not be enough remedy to fulfill the wish. Hole, a huge clothes retailer, was in a placement to manage 445,000 coupon codes in a countrywide offer (although it skilled server troubles at one stage), but a scaled-down enterprise could switch into abruptly flooded with customers. 1 particular espresso shop in Portland, Oregon struggled with an enhance in clients for three months, when it acquired near to 1,000 Groupons on the one operating day it was introduced, in accordance to a single report. In reaction to equivalent issues, Groupon officers stage out that 'deal' subscriptions should to be capped in advance to a sensible volume.
