Anderson County Nutrition opens on Seivers Boulevard

A second new business in the Clinton area offering fresh-made “health” shakes, as well as “loaded” teas and coffees, has opened on South Charles G. Seivers Boulevard, calling itself Anderson County Nutrition.

A ribbon-cutting celebrating the grand opening of the business was held last Friday morning by the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce, but the store actually opened for business on April 30.

It’s owned by relatives of a similar business that opened last November on Andersonville Highway in the Bethel community, called Clinton Nutrition.

As with the other store, Anderson County Nutrition has a menu featuring 62 flavors of shakes, and more than 50 flavors of teas, and is aligned with the global multi-level marketing company Herbalife Nutrition, which develops and markets “nutrition supplements.”

According to Wikipedia, Herbalife Nutrition’s products “include weight-loss and protein shakes, as well as protein bars, teas … and personal care products. The company’s original product is the Formula 1 protein shake, a soy-based meal-replacement shake.”

The new Clinton location, at 419 S. Charles Seivers Blvd., is operated by Kevin and Teresa Robbins of Wartburg.

Teresa Robbins said she is the sister of Rob Wright, who operates the Clinton Nutrition store in a small strip center next to the Norris Animal Hospital, along with his wife, Amy Wright, of Rocky Top.

Anderson County Nutrition is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Teresa Robbins said.

The store sells only the drinks – none of the vitamins and other products that Herbalife markets through its independent sales agents.

The loaded teas have 175 to 200 milligrams of caffeine, and no sugar. The other drinks are low-sugar, low-carb and Keto-friendly, the store operators say. Loaded teas have 24 calories and just four grams of carbohydrates, while the shakes have about 24 grams of protein, 10-14 net grams of carbs and 200-250 calories.

Shakes are $8 each; loaded teas are $7; and there is a $12 combo price for a tea and a shake, according to the posted menu boards. The iced coffees – in mocha, caramel or vanilla flavors – are $7 each.
