On the Map

I came across both of these maps when they recently made the rounds on Facebook.  I'm not sure how accurate this first one is, seeing as I was raised in Wisconsin, went to college in Iowa, and lived for the last six years in Michigan - all of which are "pop" states according to this map - and am firmly in the "soda" camp.  I've also not heard a single person here in Texas - clearly a "coke" state - use that term instead of "soda".  Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure the only person I know who uses the word "pop" is my mom...

Blue = "pop", yellow = "soda", red = "coke"

This second map is completely accurate.  I'm super duper proud to be from that great big red blob in the middle of the Midwest - otherwise known as Wisconsin - and to have gone to college in the smaller red blob covering East Central Iowa.

Yellow = more grocery stores than bars, red = more bars than grocery stores
