I just call it juice - partly because the kids can only say juice and so they know what i'm doing :)

I won't buy a can. Only a bottle.

This is a bad (and rare) situation. If that happens, I probably wouldn't drink anything. Although I have had to drink straight out of the can on one or two occasions. Usually we make sure to have a bottle of water with us wherever we go, though.

i'm the opposite, I only buy cans. Its a thing that happened when pregnant with Danny - I only wanted juice from a can and its kinda stuck.

well.. soda would be Mineralwasser/Selters if it's just carbonated water, or Limonade if it tastes like lemon etc, and coke is Cola. then there's also Fanta, Sprite and whatnot.

and I drink everything out of the bottle :D

If it's already cold, I just drink it out of the can. If it's not cold, I pour it in a glass with ice, though I don't really like to do that because I'm not a big fan of diluted soda (I don't get ice in my fountain sodas, either). Needless to say, when I buy cans of soda, they go straight into the fridge.

I dislike carbonated beverages in general. However, if there is a glass around and I open a can of beer...the beer goes into the glass.

Preference for glass with ice. Mostly because I can't stand the carbonation and like it watered down. Also, like others it depends on the situation.

Prior to today, I would have said just 'soda' as it's what I usually use, but today I went to first Arby's for lunch and then Sbarro's for dinner and both times I said, "And I'll have a Coke." At Arby's it didn't matter because I poured it myself, but at Sbarro's I had to quickly add, "A Diet Pepsi, thanks." I think I've done the same thing several times before, but this was twice in the same day, so I checked Coke for generic carbonated beverages, too. I don't even like regular coke. I don't really drink anything else so, for me, soda = Diet Coke/Pepsi = (apparently) Coke. (I suspect laziness over saying 'Diet' is too blame.)


And I'll generally drink it out of a can (especially if I have a twizzler to use as a straw - but that works best with ginger ale) but at my gramma's house, she gives us a can and a glass, so I pour it out then. Also, if it's flat, I'll put it in a cup and mix it with fresher soda.

I open my soda ahead of time so it flattens a tad before I drink it.

TWIZZLER STRAWS ROCK! Also, chocolate twizzlers are awesome in milk.
