  1. You're missing a spaces on "sundaes" line The correct code should be: sundaes = available.split(";")

  2. I'm working on the same challenge, trying to figure out the "menu" line

Hi Evan,

  1. Although the spaces you where missing won't show as wrong on the challenge, the best line of code should have those spaces before and after the "=" sign.

  2. You where missing a dot after {} sings on menu variable

  3. You only needed to replace the place holder with display_menu if you combined the sundaes list

  4. You have it right just delete .format(display_menu)
