Why Are They Called Soft Drinks? The word ‘soft drink’ owes its origin to simple advertising. The makers of artificial (and natural) flavored carbonated beverages were having a difficult time marketing their product nationally thanks to the fact that the name for these beverages varied from region to region and even city to city.

The term “soft drink” though is now typically used exclusively for flavored carbonated beverages. This is actually due to advertising. Flavored carbonated beverage makers were having a hard time creating national advertisements due to the fact that what you call their product varies from place to place.

So the term "soft drink" came in existence due to the joint effort of carbonated drink makers. Flavoured carbonated beverage makers were having a hard time creating a national advertisement due to the fact that 'what people called those product' varies from place to place.

Advertising is the reason why we call all carbonated drinks as 'soft drinks'! Previously, flavoured carbonated beverages were called 'pop' or 'soda' in the US, 'fizzy drinks' in England and 'minerals' in Ireland! As companies found it difficult to create national ad campaigns because of the name variations, they used a single common term for these beverages- soft drinks!

Because the way we call carbonated beverages varies from place from place, manufacturers had a hard time creating national advertisements. For example, some Americans call them ‘pop’, others ‘soda’, others ‘coke’. If you go international, you’ll find even more names: ‘fizzy drinks’ in England or ‘minerals’ in Ireland.

Why are soft drinks called soft? The “soft” in soft drinks is an adjective used in relation to a hard drink. The beverage is not soft like a pillow. Rather, it is nonalcoholic, unlike a hard drink, which is a distilled alcoholic beverage. Bathing in and imbibing natural mineral water were ancient practices.

Carbonated drinks or fizzy drinks are beverages that contain dissolved carbon dioxide.The dissolution of CO 2 in a liquid, gives rise to fizz or effervescence.The process usually involves carbon dioxide under high pressure. When the pressure is removed, the carbon dioxide is released from the solution as small bubbles, which causes the solution to become effervescent, or fizzy.

Beverages are carbonated for various reasons. Many people find the fizzy sensation to be pleasant and like the slightly different taste that carbon dioxide provides. Carbonated beverages, particularly naturally carbonated spring water, were once thought to be health tonics, and the effervescence can help soothe an upset stomach.
