Can someone please explain the error in my code? it would be greatly appreciated

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)

The join method receives a list rather than a string (delimiter). The string is which has the method join. So it would be:

display_menu = ', '.join(sundaes)
