|About Dr. Enuf
Dr. Enuf, a lightly carbonated lemon-lime flavored beverage,
has been bottled for the past 50 years with pride by TRI-CITY BEVERAGE CORPORATION in Johnson City, Tennessee and
can be found in the surrounding area. Dr. Enuf comes in these spiffy green
glass bottles which contain exactly 375 ml (12.68 fl. oz) of
Here's what the bottle says about Dr. Enuf--
"Dr. Enuf, a refreshing soft drink enriched with
vitamins and minerals, has been providing a great tasting boost of energy
since 1949. Over the years, the tesimonals have poured in from Dr. Enuf Drinkers,
claiming all sorts of benefits and "cures". While we don't make any claims,
other than the fact that Dr. Enuf does contian these vitamins and minerals,
the letters and phone calls keep coming in. . ."
- Dr. Enuf has been around for a fairly long time, although it has only recently started to
catch on outside of the Tennessee Mountains.
- Dr. Enuf is bottled by
Tri-City Beverage Corp. in Johnson City, Tenn., the same people who ORIGINALLY
brought us Mountain Dew before evil Pepsico bought it in the 60's (interesting
little factoid, huh?).
- Dr. Enuf is great,
because it is loaded with sugar and CAFFEINE!!!!!!
It contains 47 grams of pure cane sugar, and 72 milligrams of
it equal in potency to the extremely hypercaffeinated Jolt Cola. (thanks to Jeff
Summers for the caffeine info, you're the man!)
important feature of Doc Enuf is that it is also enriched with vitamins and
minerals (e.g. Potassium, Niacin) that you simply can't find in other soft drinks.
Bob's Opinion of Doc
Dr. Enuf tastes great and is a refreshing alternative
for JOSTA freaks who are looking for more variety. It tastes vaguely like SPRITE,
or maybe a lemony ginger-ale, but it is MUCH more kickin' and has a lot of
bite. It contains 47 grams of 100% PURE CANE SUGAR!!!
For the ultimate rush try ENUF right after a JOSTA!
(1/15/2000)--Hey, if you are wanting to buy some Dr. Enuf, go to eBay sometime
over the next few days. A distributor has put some up for auction, I
guess bacause he is trying to get the word out about Dr. Enuf. The auction
Here I will insert a little tidbit which I have been
hearing through the "rumor mill"....
Very soon, Dr. Enuf may go national, hopefully within the next five
years!! I know nothing more about this, I got this from someone with a
connection to the inside...
Also, look for
an OFFICIAL company website, hopefully, sometime in the next few months!!!!!
ABOUT THE DR. ENUF CONTEST...
is an example of the many e-mails that I have been getting lately:
Rules for Flip the Lid
Date: 8/15/99 9:29:24 PM Eastern Daylight Time
need to know the rules for the Flip the Lid game on the Dr. Enuf bottles
because I have a lid the says "1955 50 Golden Years" and another that
1999 50 Golden Years." What does this mean? Did I win something?
will now answer his question in the best way that I know how. Did you
win? I have absolutely no clue, and neither does anyone else!
That is the only gripe I have so far with the company, is that they started a
contest with rules to which no one outside of Johnson City has easy
access. Maybe they should have only publicized it locally so that those of
us hundreds of miles away who can only get Enuf at obscure gas stations wouldn't
be clueless about it.
I haven't had time to
write Tri-City about their contest rules. I don't even know if the contest
has expired yet. If you have any information about this contest, i.e. how to win, etc.,
please drop me a line. If you actually win something, tell rest of us about
it, we'd love to hear from you!
