Were do you " i tried joining the strings to the flavors"? That's your problem area.

Hi Dolapo,

The question asks for the string to be "Our available flavors are: {}." but you have "Our available flavours are:{}."

Then it asks you to rejoin the flavours "by a comma and a space (", ")" but you have used a semicolon and no space.

Also, you are referring to a variable called 'flavors' but no such variable exists. The flavours are stored in a variable called "sundaes".

Cheers

Alex

thanks so much Alex, i did that and it passed. although i didn't see where the questions says join with a comma and a space and i used semi colon because that was what the flavors where introduced with initially. guess i have lots to learn in python.

thanks so much
