Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
split and join
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white".split(;) sundaes = available.split(;)
You don't need to do anything to the available declaration on line 1 - at the moment if you call split on the string you'll store in available in line 1 and then again on line 2 you'll get an AttributeError, because the split on line 1 returned a list, so when you try split again on line 2, attribute is a list and they don't have a .split() method.
The trick here is that by default split() will break on all whitespace, to get it to split on some other character, we need to pass it a string to break on. Here that string is ";", so split(";") will work
Hope it helps :)
