It’s all delicious, though the Salty Pimp, with dulce de leche and sea salt, is the one people talk about — as they should. 521 South Broad Street, Bella Vista, 267-886-8024.

Chocolate or vanilla ice cream studded with brownie “boulders,” hot fudge, malt powder and whipped cream. Michelle Obama can wait only so long before declaring war on this caloric eruption. 116 Market Street, Old City, 215-627-1899.

The gelato maker here has won international awards. It’s conceived and tested in a “gelato lab” on the third floor. And the amarena cherry might be the best cold dessert you’ll ever taste — and will absolutely be the best gelato you’ve ever had. 1716 Chestnut Street, Rittenhouse, 215-568-5600.
