.join () inside of .format()

Any hint on what I am missing. Thanks!!

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

you're calling join backwards. the delimiting string you want between the elements is what you call join on, and the argument is the collection. so ', '.join(list).
