split(), join() code challenge.

So this is my code for the code challenge, which works. But the challenge says you can do the last two lines all in one line on the menu = "Our available. . ." line, what would that code look like?

menu = 'Our available flavors are {}.' display_menu = ", ".join(sundaes) menu = 'Our available flavors are {}.'.format(display_menu)

banana.py
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors

THIS IS HOW TO GET IT ALL DONE IN ONE LINE

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

sundaes = available.split(";")

menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(sundaes)) 
#without using the "display_menu" variable
