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

banana.py

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Whenever I check my work it tells me that Task 1 is no longer passing.

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

You're on the right track, just a few problems. You're declaring the menu variable twice, when just once at the end will do. Another is that your join method is incorrectly formed, you need to first enter how you'd like content to be joined (", ") then type the join method, and then enter what content you'd like to be joined together, so it'll look like this (", ").join(sundaes).

All in all, it should look like this.

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