Soda or pop? Slang terms used in different regions
Posted Tue Apr 19, 2011 07:15 PM
Soda = Pop
Bubbler = Water Fountain (like the drinking kind)
Jimmies = Sprinkles
Fries = Chips
Chips = Crisps
Cookies = Biscuits
So I was curious...what other terms do we use for the same objects?
I know that England and the US have a bunch of differences but even throughout the US there are a bunch!

Soda would be only used in reference to carbonated water.
also I constantly make an ass out of myself in other states when I ask where the nearest "party store" is and they ask me "you need to buy party supplies?"
up here a "party store" is a generic term for any place that sells beer, wine, liquor, snack foods, pop, cigarettes, magazines, etc.
