Why Carbonated Beverages Are Dubbed As “Soft Drinks”

“Soft Drink” used to refer to all beverages that don’t have alcohol in them (hard drinks). Such term is now almost exclusively used for flavored carbonated drinks, and the media is the culprit. Flavored carbonated drink manufacturers were dilly-dallying about making their ads because there are varied terms for the product from one region to another (soda, coke, and pop, among many others). So as to get around with this issue, for all advertising campaigns, they just agreed to use “soft drink.”
