UT sports fans can eat their pride with the deep fried Longhorn doughnuts concocted by Donut Taco Palace II. The novelty treat was recently rediscovered by Bevo Beat through a two-year-old Reddit post. The doughnut shop has been frying up the sweets in the shape of the iconic hand gesture since 2012.

The doughnuts are only available through preorder on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. $8 will get you half a dozen, with a full dozen going for $14. For non-sports fans, the bakery also makes other "hand signal" doughnuts, including peace symbols and flipping the bird.

The Austin location of the Portland doughnut shop Voodoo Doughnut has been drinking the school spirit Kool-Aid since it opened in October by creating its own versions of Longhorn doughnuts, though in different forms, including a take on its bavarian cream with Longhorn frosting and a basketball for one of the team's wins in February.

A previous version of this story erroneously included incorrect photo of the Longhorn doughnut.
