It looks like you did pretty well until you got to the menu part. Remember that sundaes now contains everything from "available" but with the semicolon removed. Now we want to take sundaes and put a comma and space in there so it doesn't look like this ... strawberry chocolate banana. We want: strawberry, chocolate, banana. We do this by joining them back up. It seems like you have the right idea but the execution is a bit muddled. Take a look at my code.

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