A supermarket called Shopwell’s is filled with anthropomorphic grocery items and the human shoppers are worshipped as gods who take groceries to the “Great Beyond” when they are purchased. Among the groceries in the store is a sausage named Frank, who has dreams of living with his hot dog bun girlfriend, Brenda, in the Great Beyond, where they can finally consummate their relationship.
After Frank and Brenda’s packages are chosen by Camille Toh to leave Shopwell’s, a returned jar of Honey Mustard informs the disbelieving groceries that the Great Beyond is a lie. Honey Mustard calls on Frank to seek out a bottle of liquor named Firewater, before committing suicide. This creates an accidental cart collision that causes Frank, Brenda, and several groceries to fall out, including a Douche which gets its nozzle bent and plots revenge against Frank and Brenda.
Seeking to verify Honey Mustard’s warning, Frank leads Brenda, Kareem Abdul Lavash, and Sammy Bagel Jr. to the store’s liquor aisle, pretending to take a shortcut to their proper aisles. There, he smokes marijuana and learns from Firewater that he and other non-perishable foods invented the story of the Great Beyond as a noble lie to assuage past foods’ fears of being eaten by shoppers. Frank, vowing to reveal the truth to the groceries, is encouraged to travel beyond the store’s freezer section to find proof.
Meanwhile, the rest of the purchased groceries are horrified as they are being being cooked and eaten. Two of Frank’s best friends, Carl and a deformed sausage named Barry attempt to escape out a window, but Carl is killed when Camille slices him with a knife. Barry barely managed to escape and stumbles across a human drug user, who becomes able to communicate with his groceries after he injects himself with bath salts. After sobering up and attempting to cook Barry, the drug user is decapitated in a domestic accident.
After Frank separates from his friends who disapprove of his skepticism of the Great Beyond, he discovers a cookbook behind the freezer section and reveals its contents to the rest of Shopwell’s groceries. However, they choose not to believe him, lest they lose their sense of purpose. Barry, along with some survivors, returns to the store with the drug addict’s severed head, revealing that the humans can be killed. The groceries are able to drug the humans shoppers using toothpicks laced with bath salts. Frank asks everyone to listen to him once more and join the fight against the shoppers. At first, his fellow food still refuse, but when the drugged humans started attacking them, the other items come to their rescue and a store-wide battle ensues. Once all the shoppers, Darren, and Douche are killed, Frank, Brenda and all of the foods in the store celebrate their victory with an orgy.
