PROVO, Utah – BYU’s famous game day treat, a CougarTail, will have a unique option during Saturday’s football game against Arkansas. Fans at LaVell Edwards Stadium will be able to purchase a chocolate-covered CougarTail.

Folks, this isn’t a drill. Typically, the popular CougarTail is available in a maple flavor.

BYU Dining announced the limited edition item would be available while supplies last. Dining Services wrote, “Enjoy your favorite 18-inch concessions treat with a delicious chocolate twist as you cheer Cougar football to victory.”

Saturday’s rollout of chocolate CougarTails is an interesting choice considering BYU will be wearing white uniforms. Fans are being asked to wear white to the game against the 3-3 Arkansas Razorbacks.

Not the first time BYU has sold chocolate CougarTails

It’s not the first time BYU has released chocolate CougarTails. In 2012, for BYU’s first blackout game against Oregon State, BYU had chocolate CougarTails available to fans. Last week, BYU wore blackout uniforms against Notre Dame in Las Vegas. It’s possible BYU intended to have homecoming versus Arkansas as the initial blackout game, and that’s why the chocolate CougarTails were tabbed for this week.

But once Notre Dame unveiled white uniforms, BYU needed to go in another direction.

Now fans are going to risk getting chocolate on their white t-shirts. But for a chocolate CougarTail, it might be worth the risk.

Along with the 2012 Oregon State game, BYU also had chocolate CougarTails on Halloween night against Western Kentucky in 2020. But unfortunately, in that game, only 10% of LaVell Edwards Stadium’s capacity was allowed to be filled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So it’s been a while since a sold-out LES crowd was able to experience the greatness of a chocolate CougarTail.

BYU versus Arkansas kicks off at 1:30 p.m. on ESPN and KSL NewsRadio, your legacy home of the BYU Cougars.
