Why does cold tomato juice feel colder than cold soda? Is it because it's thicker and the "cold content" of a given volume of liquid is greater?

"Specific heat" -- a measure of the amount of heat energy required to raise (or lower) the temperature of a material by a standard amount. Probably does relate to the solids content.

Or maybe it's all in your mind.
