Didn't find the right series of sundaes and commas in `menu`.

I try to run the codes on Workspaces and it works fine. But in the exercise the code is not accepted.

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

You have to use the ".format()" in the "menu" variable. And you have a few choices:

  1. if you want to "Be brave and you want to accomplish this on the same line where "menu" is currently beeing set". move the "display_menu" before the "menu", and let the "display_menu" do only the "', '.join()" part and add the ".format()" at the end of the 'menu'.
  2. Or you do something like "menu = menu.format()"
