Plot[change | change source]
Frank is one of the sausages who dreams of living with his hot dog bun girlfriend, Brenda. When Frank and Brenda's packages are chosen by a woman named Camille Toh to leave a supermarket called Shopwell's, a returned jar of Bickle's honey mustard unsuccessfully warns the groceries that the Great Beyond is a noble lie. Frank fails to stop Honey Mustard from committing suicide. This causes the two carts to crash each other, while Brenda, Frank and some groceries end up leaving the cart. The douche plots revenge against Frank and Brenda, after getting his nozzle bent. Teresa, a taco, falls in love with Brenda right after meeting her. Barry becomes frightened, when he discovers Camille preparing to cook the other purchased foods. Barry escapes from a window. When Frank separates from his friends, who disapprove of him being skeptical of the Great Beyond, he finds a cookbook behind the freezer section. When Frank reveals the contents for the rest of the groceries and before the humans return to the supermarket, the groceries choose to not believe Frank, despite his warning.
