Copying my answer in console gives me the desired output. Here I get "Didn't find the right series of sundaes and commas

I get desired result in console, but get this error during challenge, "Didn't find the right series of sundaes and commas in menu.".

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

Your code passes for me. Might have been a hiccup in the code challenge validator?

You need to loop though sundaes and add to a comma separated variable display_menu the string menu formatted with the current sundaes.

So after menu="Our ....., create a new variable display_menu = ""

Then do a for loop over sundaes, adding the formatted menu to display_menu. Dont forget to add a comma also.

You don't need any for loops to solve this.
