A typical hot fudge sundae can weigh in at 738 calories and a whopping 47 grams of fat, more than half of the daily allotment of fat if you are trying to stay within the government-recommended guidelines of less than 30 percent fat calories. Now Quaker Oats has introduced Mrs. Richardson's Fat-Free Hot Fudge and Fat-Free Caramel toppings. The fudge has only 100 calories in a two-tablespoon serving (130 for the caramel topping). The fat-free toppings have a rich, creamy "mouth feel.

I spilled the chocolate sundae on the floor of the McDonald's Restaurant on Route 202 in King of Prussia. Damn it! That was my reaction. Suddenly, within seconds, Dan Avert handed me a new chocolate sundae, began to clean up the mess and reassured me with a smile and the assertion that "it was no problem. Enjoy your meal and come again. " I have been patronizing McDonald's in King of Prussia for years. But over the past eight months, I noticed the service markedly improved.

More than 5,000 people went bananas on Princeton University's Poe Field yesterday as they attempted to break the world's record for the longest banana split. The 4.39-mile dessert, made of 22,000 bananas, 2,000 gallons of ice cream, 780 cans of whipped cream and 525 pounds of nuts, was made - and eaten - by Princeton students and hundreds of other participants to raise money for a community counseling and mental health center. The sundae was the brainchild of Princeton sophomore John Sichel, the vice president of the undergraduate student government.

The Daily News Pet of the Week is Sundae (right), a 1-to-2-year-old American bulldog/pitbull mix at the Pennsylvania SPCA. Sundae was found alone on the streets of Philadelphia. She is all white except for her "cow-print" belly, which she likes to show off in exchange for belly rubs. She's sociable and likes to go for walks. Her $20 adoption fee includes spaying, current vaccinations and a month of pet insurance. For more information about Sundae, drop by the PSPCA, 350 E. Erie Ave., or call 215-426-6300 or visit pspca.org.

Philadelphia has always been a dance music haven. South Philly's Chubby Checker invented the Twist. American Bandstand started here, as did TV dance shows like Jerry Blavat's Discophonic Scene and Dancin' on Air . Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's Sound of Philadelphia aided in the invention of disco. Techno and house music locals Josh Wink and King Britt ran their Ovum label from home. With all that came nightclubs with impossible-to-avoid dance floors - Chez-Vous; the Bank; Second Story and its basement gay club Catacombs; Circa; off-South's hallowed dance hall Fluid; after-hour clubs Revival and Black Banana; Delaware Avenue hot spots Egypt and Asylum.

Clyde bellies up to the bar at the Franklin Fountain, the throwback ice-cream emporium in Old City, his paws on the marble counter, poised to take a triple-dip sundae in a single lick. Clyde ignores all questions about his Marley & Me costars Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, although it is a widely circulated rumor that he got, um, overly friendly with Jen's favorite sweater. Clyde is, in every meaning of the word, a dog. It required six actors (including Cate Blanchett and Heath Ledger)

"They had the greatest ice cream in the world," Bill Smith said wistfully, as the Cowtail Bar was sold off around him, piece by piece. "For years, it was the only place to come to. " Yesterday's auction of the contents of the Cowtail, a venerable purveyor of ice cream in Cherry Hill, meant much more than just the sale of some glassware and restaurant equipment to Smith and to the hundreds of other former customers, employees and curiosity seekers...

To the uninitiated, the vision of Handel's Homemade Ice Cream stand posed along Route 30 in Berwyn presents little incentive to hit the brakes. Its lines are as generic as a child's drawing. Only the broad, blue-and-white-striped awning hints it's not a municipal office, or a model home (the Jubilee, perhaps) on loan from the Levittown Age. Handel's is not a household name in these parts, not even on a good deal of the Main Line, where its Berwyn location is the small Ohio chain's 34th - and easternmost - expression.

The first thing you have to know about weight control is yourself. Why do you overeat? Begin your road to expertise by keeping a food diary. It's the most effective food consciousness-raising experience, the one that is most likely to help you slim down in the long run. Think of yourself as an investigative reporter, keeping a notebook on calorie corruption. Ask yourself the questions reporters ask: Who, what, when, where, why? Start with the first four questions. Keep a daily list of what you eat, when, where and with whom.

She brought the sundae out on a little tray. There were big scoops of strawberry, chocolate and vanilla, and an oozy river of creamy caramel. How could I resist? I did what any red-blooded American male would do. I dunked my big, cracked, calloused, smelly feet right into the gooey mess and began wiggling my toes. I was at the cloud-clinging Wintergarden Spa at the Wintergreen Resort in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. My spa options included standard sports massage and manicure, but I chose to treat the most abused and maltreated part of my body.

Most summer nights, you can find the brothers Berley looking like extras from the set of The Music Man, sweeping the brick sidewalk at Second and Market with corn brooms, clearing away the paper straws, lacy doilies, silver spoons and sundae bowls and chatting, real gentlemanlike, with the clientele who have made the Franklin Fountain what it is today. Weirdly hip. In these sweet, waning days of August, a line forms out the door and around the corner at the retro spot, and the tables, set in the shade of a cypress, are filled.

WHEN MEMBERS of the Chain Gang drove through New England a few weeks ago, it seemed like we passed 99 Restaurants about 99 times. Finding out the chain had migrated down to Philadelphia, we decided we had to check it out. Not being familiar with 99, the Gang found it to be similar to Applebees - big drinks, big All-American menu, big desserts, not too big a bill. At the location on Roosevelt Boulevard, we also found the service to be exceedingly friendly even when it was slow or forgetful.

We don't usually serve dessert on "regular" nights. It saves time, stress and calories. However, our children don't embrace the benefits of the Desperation Dinners Dessert Philosophy quite the way we do, and our compromise is often a carton of ice cream or frozen yogurt. There is a way to have our cake and eat it, too. Actually, make that "pie. " With only five minutes of actual work and a tiny bit of planning, you can turn plain old ice cream and a prepared cookie-crumb crust into an Ice Cream Sundae Pie special enough even for company.

It is hard to envision Joe Piscoglio as a child, for his presence is overwhelming. His voice booms. His enthusiasm overflows. The 62-year-old proprietor of Sante's Cards & Candy in Coatesville has a not-too-distant resemblance to Santa Claus, though his white beard is thinner. And his complexion, inherited from Sicilian ancestors, is ruddier. But images of Piscoglio's youth rise all over this place and in the stories he tells of the past. "There's not too many old dinosaurs left," he said.
