Screen Rant has an exclusive first look at new flavors for the SDCC 2022 limited-edition chocolate bars crafted by the San Diego Convention Center.
San Diego Comic Con is welcoming back a sweet tradition for 2022, as the San Diego Convention Center is once again joining forces with Sodexo Live! to bring hungry convention attendees their infamous limited-edition chocolate bars for the first time since 2019. Screen Rant can exclusively reveal the four delicious flavors to choose from, explained in more detail below. The teams led by Sodexo Live! Executive Chef Sufi Karaien and Pastry Chef Matthew Haven are handcrafting 1,000 bars of each kind, which will be sold at Comic-Con from July 21 to July 24.
Not only do the culinary craftsman make a hundred candy bars every 90 minutes, like a real-life chocolate factory, but they also infuse each flavor with whimsical concepts that recall beloved pop culture elements that Comic Con is meant to celebrate. As chef Karaien declares in the official announcement, “We have a blast making these pop culture candy bars for California’s biggest pop culture event. You won’t find these flavors anywhere else. It’s these personal touches that keep people excited about coming to in-person events like this one.”
The Convention Center’s creative team names each chocolate based on the taste and concept developed by the chefs, after which the bars are given special designs by Hailey Adams, Senior Graphic Designer and Brand Manager, as well as video animations created by Dylan James, Digital Communications Specialist.

San Diego Convention Center & Sodexo Live! Present Limited Edition Chocolate Bars:
Get a closer look below at the 4 different flavors of limited-edition chocolate bars, handcrafted by Executive Chef Sufi Karaien, Pastry Chef Matthew Haven, and their respective teams.
Clandestine flavors emerge through every encounter with the Misunderstood Villain, a zesty product of dark chocolate, local orange, Tajin, and smoked paprika.
With a rainbow blend of passion fruit, crispy mango, white chocolate, and Froot Loops, the Recess bar transports you to a vibrant land of four square, hopscotch, and kickball games.
Who says s’mores need to be evening desserts? Made with dark chocolate, Golden Grahams, and Lucky Charms marshmallows, the Sunrise S’mores bar is a tasty treat for any time of day.
With floral notes and a smooth texture, the Pixie’s Garden bar is a fairytale flavor featuring white chocolate, hibiscus flower, and elderflower ganache
The craft chocolates will be sold for $7 each, with 1,000 bars available in each flavor. The bars have become a beloved icon representing the SDCC event and feeding convention goers since they were first launched in 2016. In fact, the last in-person San Diego Comic Con extravaganza saw the Convention Center’s food and beverage team sell out over 4,000 chocolate bars over four days, having prepared them every afternoon to preserve the perfect flavor.
To add to the excitement, golden tickets will be hidden inside four of the chocolate bars, which can then be redeemed for $100 Starbucks gift cards. Be sure to stop by and try your luck when visiting San Diego for the convention this year!
San Diego Comic-Con takes place from July 21 to July 24, 2022, and more information can be found on their official website.
