Hey there,

you almost got it right, all you have to do is combine the different parts! :) Note that you can use the format method directly on the String so it gets assigned to menu . Then you have to give the format method the String that results by using the join method on the comma and passing this method the sundaes variable as an argument.

Like so:

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

I hope that helps. If you have further questions feel free to ask, good luck! :)
