I'm getting the following feedback: 'Didn't find the right series of sundaes and commas in menu.'. Why?

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

Everything in your code are correct except for the very last line. Calling the .format() method on menu does not change the value of menu variable, you also need to assign this value to menu.

menu = menu.format(display_menu)

Like such, hope it helps.

William Li: thank you! This solved my mystery :)
