I try to check the task 3 and I get a message saying : Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing. But thats wrong.

When I check the task one, the answer is that everything is ok.

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

Hey Simon,

When using join in your context try it like so:

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

See if you can figure out the difference between my code and your code yourself.

If you have any other questions I will update my answer, if you do not have any other questions:
