If you were to spend $100 at the grocery
store, what would you be able to buy?.
Well, if you live in Alaska, then $100 isn’t going to get you very far.
To show residents of the
contiguous United States just
how outrageous Alaska prices are.
a TikTok user named Suzi decided to
record her trip to the grocery store.
In the video, which has more than
259,000 likes, Suzi peruses everything
from cleaning products...
to the produce aisle, highlighting crazy prices as she goes.
For a 32-load bottle of Tide that costs $6.89 on Target’s website, Suzi would have to pay $19.29.
A six-pack of generic
toilet paper costs $12.19.
A 12-ounce bag of Starbucks
coffee beans is just under $15.
And if you want some
Clorox bleach, that’ll be $30.
Many fellow Alaskans noted that though
this is the norm in rural, isolated villages.
bigger cities like Anchorage
are much more affordable
