Limonadia sounds like Limonedia

Yes, unfortunately the robot gets that one wrong, and we can't stop her from saying it... We have, however, disabled the listening comprehension exercises with this word.

Got to avoid any unintensional brand placement.

True. In real life, you'd probably call it kokista or kokakolaa, regardless of the actual brand.

I heard recently that restaurants are actually more likely here to have Pepsi on tap than Coca-Cola. If you order coke, some will ask you if Pepsi is OK, others will just serve you whatever black fizzy drink they have. So people who are particular about this have to ask when ordering. Apparently, the "default" on tap in most of the world is Coke, but not here.
