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

having trouble figuring out challenge task 3 of 3 for use .split() and .join()

Alright, let's finish making our menu. Combine the sundaes list into a new variable named display_menu, where each item in the list is rejoined together by a comma and a space (", "). Then reassign the menu variable to use the existing variable and .format() to replace the placeholder with the new string in display_menu. If you're really brave, you can even accomplish this all on the same line where menu is currently being set.

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

sundaes = available.split(";")
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(sundaes))

I mixed up where you put the ", " with join as opposed to split. Could be the problem. This code should work for you, though.
