It says I can't get task one to pass, when I am on the final step. What am I doing wrong?

I have tried retracing my steps. Task 1 works by itself, but it stops working when I am on the final step.

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

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

# you could also try do it in a fewer steps
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(sundaes))
