While the traditional maple donut version of BYU’s famous CougarTail is available at all BYU Football games, the school has tried out variations on the treat.

At some BYU Football games, you can get a chocolate CougarTail, which seems to be a fan favorite based on social media excitement. Typically this one is found at Blackout or Dark Mode games, but it has also made an appearance around Halloween time. So keep your eyes out.
