Terminology

Carbonated beverage. Preferred term adopted by manufacturers in 1919 to favorably disassociate the packaged effervescent beverages from other types of soft drink.

Soft drink. Commonly adopted early in the twentieth century to disassociate flavored refreshment waters from alcoholic beverages. Includes all varieties of carbonated and still beverages in bottles and cans and also those prepared at the fountain.

Soda. Originally a specific type of carbonated water, which included sodium bicarbonate for its medicinal properties. Term became generic in America for the broad category of flavored carbonated soft drinks. Because soda is not an ingredient in modern beverages, the term "soda water" is disfavored by the industry, although "soda" persists as a popular designation for carbonated beverages, particularly in the northeastern United States.

Pop. Popular term in the late nineteenth century for bottled flavored soda waters and still widely used by consumers in the central parts of the United States. Derived from popping noise made when the cork or other closure was removed from the bottle. Tonic. A New England generic name for packaged carbonated beverages derived from the health values attributed to early carbonated waters. Also an English term now used in the United States to designate carbonated quinine water.
