    Most fruit juice, especially the tinned muck, is absolutely riddled with sugar, several teaspoons.

    So it cools you for a couple of minutes, until your body starts burning the sugar. And at that point you start heating up again, only ten times worse, like a reentry vehicle entering the Earth's atmosphere!

    Same goes for ice cream and ice lollies. I never touch the vile things.
