In addition, several large grocery stores, such as Carrs/Safeway and Fred Meyer, COSTCO and Wal-Mart, carry the same variety of Kosher OU-OK-CK foods which you would be able to purchase in the large non-Kosher supermarkets in the Lower 48 including: bagels, tuna, sardines, smoked salmon (lox), pickles, potato chips, etc. Manischewitz products, such as matzah, gefilte fish, chicken soup, Pas Yisrael Ezekiel bread, etc. for Friday night dinners are also available. Kosher wine can be purchased at Carrs’ Oaken Keg liquor stores. There are no kosher delis, restaurants, or other places to purchase hot kosher food in Alaska. Please note that the Falafel King is not under any Kosher Supervision.  Outside of Anchorage, a smaller selection of the same kosher products is available. There is a very limited selection of OUD and OKD dairy products available. There is no chalav Israel products available.
