Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Use .split() and .join()

Alright, let's finish making our menu. Combine the sundaes list into a new string,

Etc etc etc... I just don't understand how to do this properly may revist some videos but if anyone has some spare time please help me.

Menu = "Our available flavors are: {}." < -- I cannot add another dot here

However, those braces why are they there is it to call another function? if I add available then join('sundaes') will it address my issue or am I adding another feature to this menu like drinks?

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

Good start on Tasks 1 and 2. For Task 3 you need to review how format() and join() work:

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