Hmm. I have a notification for 1st task that was succesfully done. Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing.

Can't finish the step of the lesson. :( But suppose that my code is Ok. And all tasks were checked by your checker.

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

In Python, .join() is a string method that takes a sequence argument.

But you applied the method to a sequence and gave it a string argument. Try it the other way.

The "task 1" message is just because having a syntax error breaks everything, and task 1 is re-tested first.
