Hi there! In your version of the code, the display_menu holds the value that the menu is supposed to have. Note in the instructions where it says that we're supposed to reassign the value of menu to be the current menu formatted with the display_menu. The variable display_menu should simply hold sundaes joined with a comma and a space.

I hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:
