Re: Best way to say "pop"

Wow, that´s a good question. It depends the region, for example in North of Mexico (where I live) we say: Soda; in Mexico City it´s called: refresco, but in general you ask for the brand, this is, You sk for a Coca Cola, Sprite, Seven Up, Fanta, etc.

That´s the way we use in Mexico.

That's correct. "Refresco" is the generic term (no "soda" in Spain), but you usually go with the brand.

And it can be really funny when you hear someone ask for a "esprite" or a "siete u pé"
