I am trying to get this code correct on the workspace

on task 3 the code sounds to me like I need to do:

display_menu = menu.format(",".join(sundaes))

Because this makes sense to added the code together because this is what is being asked of us in the example can some please tell me what I am doing wrong?

banana.py
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}."
display_menu = menu.format(",".join(sundaes))

You just need to swap the menu and display_menu variables around to get this to pass the challenge. You also need to split on comma followed by space, rather than just a comma:

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
display_menu = "Our available flavors are: {}."
menu = display_menu.format(", ".join(sundaes))
