I think it's time for a snack. Luckily I have a string full of types of ice cream sundaes. Unluckily, they're all in one string and the string has semi-colons in it too.

Use .split() to break the available string apart on the semi-colons (;). Assign this to a new variable sundaes.

banana.py
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
available="banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white".split(";")
sundaes="available"
sundaes+",".join(available)

What split does is it will separate the things in a string using some separator. for example str1 = 'abcd:efgh' str1.split(':')

You need to only provide below command sundaes = available.split(";")
