I am stuck on a python code challenge and what I am typing is valid

I am doing it correctly I guess I just have to do it the exact right format

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

Hi there! You're very close and syntactically it's correct, but it doesn't do exactly what the instructions say. That last line formats the menu with the display_menu in place, but the results aren't saved anywhere. It's wanting the ending value of menu to be the menu formatted with display_menu.

So, if I add menu = to the beginning of your last line of code, it passes all three steps. Good work as you were almost there.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
