A lifelong Southerner from Atlanta, GA, with family (Mom's) in rural SC

and (Papa's) in small town AL: yes, a "coke," or more properly, a

"Co-cola," is what we all were offered upon entering a friend's house,

whatever the selection might include (Pepsi, Nehi Grape, Rootbeer,

Fresca, Orange Crush....). Even here in the Big City I hear my classmates

and coworkers who have been here for more than a year or so use "coke"
