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

Challenge 3 of 3 in Beginner Python. I keep trying menu.format(", ".join(sundaes)) to no avail.

I am using this exact code in my interpreter: menu.format(", ".join(sundaes)) which spits out the exact answer that we are supposed to be getting. When enter that in the Treehouse interpreter I keep getting an error message.

I would like to bypass this section so that I can move on with the tutorial but am unsure how to do so. Please help!

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

Hi Chris,

add the append function and the join function after the curly braces like this:

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