      Hi,

      Fellow map nerds may enjoy this map showing the prevalence of soda, pop, coke and other terms for that fizzy sugar water http://popvssoda.com/

      Cheers

      Liz

      PS Usually I hear people speaking about limco for the fruit-flavored stuff and kofcu for cola (kofola), but that could be very Prague/limited to small children/both.

      PPS Soda Pop Joe, love it :)

Not long ago I had to edit a promotional text on a drink that consisted of tea mixed with lemonade, and the Czech text kept saying it was tea mixed with "limonada", when it was really tea mixed specifically with citronada.
