Hi Ahmed, the task wants us to join the strings in the sundaes variables with a "," and a space. You are on the right track with the format method but it should look like this.

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

So the output of this would be: Our available flavors are: banana split, hot fudge, cherry, malted, black and white.

I hope this helps.
