I can't figure out how to get through this. Help!

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

You are very close you just missed the ", " before join method. Here is the completed code below

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