#Anonymous on Feb 08, 2014 :
Everything costs more in Alaska ! In particular in the Northern part of the state and West. The further away from more densely populated area you go, the higher the prices. All the cost of travel to get the food to you is built into the prices. The fuel, the driving, the delivery, the set-up, etc. A simple spaghetti and meatballs dinner costs....WHAT ? Wanted to make it and found out how ridiculous the cost was. Was up here from New York City and went to the local grocery store. This was the "BIG" supermarket in the area," the size of a midsized neighborhood grocery store in the lower "48." 1 lb. box of cheap PARADE spaghetti $ 4.99, 1 large jar of PREGO spaghetti sauce (24 oz..) $8.99, 1.4 lbs. of ground bison-meat (beef is almost double the price up here) $ 14.99, 1 jar of KRAFT grated parmesan cheese 8.ozs. $7.99. 2 eggs $ 2.00 (that's right ! $1.00 per egg.)1 bottle of pure olive oil (17 ozs.) $ 19.99. 1 small yellow onion $1.00 .Dried basil, parsley, black ground pepper, etc. Total: $ 15.00 and 1 medium-sized can of seasoned breadcrumbs (15 ozs.) $ 4.99. There's no such thing as fresh sauce here, particularly in Winter. No or few fresh herbs,Good quality Italian ingredients like fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano grating cheese is unheard of and their canned tomatoes are only strewed tomatoes. All prices are approximate and the total...a whopping $ 70.00 !!!! This for a cheap pasta dinner ! It could feed 3 hungry adults or about 4 kids. It was O'K, but the ingredients were certainly not the best or fresh like we are accustomed to in New York or any city in the continental U.S. So, there you have it. If you are planning on going to Alaska, the costs of basics are far greater than back home. However, in Southern Alaska and near the cost, say in Juneau or Anchorage and closer East near Canada, prices are lower, but still you will be in for a shock as compared to all the lower "48" states. Buon Appetito !
