Soft drink

A soft drink (see terminology for other names) is a drink that typically contains carbonated water (although orange soda and lemonade, among others, are usually not carbonated), a sweetener, and a natural or artificial flavoring. The sweetener may be sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice, sugar substitutes (in the case of diet drinks), or some combination of these. Soft drinks may also contain caffeine, colorings, preservatives, and other ingredients.

Names for Soft Drink

Ordering a soft drink at home in Tennessee: "What do you want to drink?" "A coke." "What kind?" "Dr. Pepper, thanks." Ordering a soft drink somewhere else (especially in the north): "What do you want to drink?" "A coke." "Here's your Coca-Cola." "Not again."

Extreme Soda Fan

Ever wonder what would happen if you were to drink soda — and only soda — for a long time? A woman in Monaco did just that for 15 years. The 31-year-old was sent to the hospital after she fainted. Tests found she had severely low potassium levels and an irregular heartbeat, but no hormone problems or family history of heart problems. She did, however, admit to drinking 2 liters (about a half gallon) of cola and no other liquids every day since the age of 15. www.livescience.com/37919-oddest-medical-case-reports.html
