Elvis has left the building. He split. Get it? Get this: the Pop Shop’s banana split with scoops of Bassetts peanut butter swirl, chocolate and vanilla, smothered in peanut butter sauce, hot fudge, Reese’s Cups, nuts, and tons of whipped cream. 729 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood, 856-869-0111;

Pitcher Perfect
Yes, the Phillies are a travesty, but the Franklin Fountain’s Seventh Inning Stretch sundae is a winner. A waffle-cone mitt holds a vanilla ice-cream ball “laced” with strawberry sauce and sprinkled with those two ballpark greats, peanuts and Cracker Jack. 116 Market Street, 215-627-1899; franklinfountain.com.
