Getting error: Task 1 is no longer passing

Getting error: Task 1 is no longer passing, the code appears to be correct, what am I doing wrong?

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

sundaes = available.split(';')

menu = "Our available flavors are: {}."

display_menu = sundaes.join(", ")

menu = menu.format(display_menu)

Easy fix... note that "join" is a string method rather than a list method. Your code will pass if you change the assignment to display menu.

display_menu = ", ".join(sundaes)

Hi David

Your error is in line 4, you call the join method on a string not on a list.

#should be
display_menu = ", ".join(sundaes)

# not
display_menu = sundaes.join(", ")

happy coding
