Need help with the rest of this code challenge!

I absolutely don't understand what i'm supposed to do now? Any advice?

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

Hey Alex, the problem is with the .join method. the syntax is: ', '.join() Hope this helps!

Hey Alex,

try checking the syntax of the join() method. It works the other way around. Your code should look something like this:

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