  1. Where is your variable display_menu asked for in the challange?
  2. Remove .format(''.join(available)) from the line menu = "Our available flavors are:{}.".format(''.join(available)) as that is fixing the variable and you cannot reuse it.
  3. Hint, you can loop though sundaes

Hey Christopher, I'm sure you can loop through sundaes... but I'm trying to imagine why? I haven't seen this done that way. I would be curious as to what that would look like.
