The show was themed as a benefit concert for good nutrition hosted by Fud Wrapper, who was voiced by real-life rapper Tone Loc. However, the show was continually interrupted by the Excess, a junk food heavy metal band that detests nutrition. In the end, Excess lost their power as Fud Wrapper exclaimed, "No power? You guys have been unplugged! There's plenty of foods out there that are good to eat, but remember, always eat with moderation."
Food Rocks debuted inside The Land pavilion at Epcot Center on March 26, 1994. It replaced the former audio-animatronic show, "Kitchen Kabaret". As the attraction was created, it was quickly rated a B-Ticket attraction. It has been said that the storyline to this show was better than Kitchen Kabaret's, but Kitchen Kabaret's show had better detail to the audio animatronics. Food Rocks closed on January 3, 2004 in order to make room for Soarin'.
