What would you like to drink?

I've known this for a long time and it was definitely one of the many (though minor) cultural differences I noticed coming to Maine. But here's a picture of what we all know is true. This is more interesting than if you're a blue state or a red state. So I grew up in a turquoise state and moved to a green state.
This was shared by my goddaughter who was born in Texas (turquoise), grew up in New York (green), and is going to college in Michigan (black).

She shared the graphic from I do not know the original source.

There's a small pocket around Boston, where I grew up, where soft drinks are called "tonic." It took me a few months to adjust to using "soda" when I moved to Maine. It helped that people kept looking at me strangely whenever I asked for a tonic. "Are you not feeling well?" they would often ask.
