Must just be you and your family because I know many of your generation who were raised in Colorado and not one of them say pop.

You know you're from Colorado when you actually are....it's in your blood and a way of life. Hopefully the newbies embrace it.

When you haven't smoked Mexican dirt weed in like 7 years. We got that fire! Real Denver natives still say "pop" when referring to soda pop.

Who says pop in Colorado? I've worked in a gas station, king soopers, and retail stores all that sold soda and never once heard anyone call it pop

Pop always sounds funny to me. I'm from Texas and was raised saying soda water.

We say Soda and not 'pop'. The word pop only got here about 10 years ago with the influx of Texans...
