Stuck I don't understand this question of code challenge: Challenge Task 3 of 3

I don't understand this question of code challenge: Challenge Task 3 of 3

Alright, let's finish making our menu. Combine the sundaes list into a new string, joining them with a comma and a space (", "). Use that string with a .format() on our existing menu variable and replace the current value of menu.

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

Your code looks good :+1: So I cut-and-pasted it directly into the challenge and it passed. :white_check_mark:

Maybe you had a typo in the challenge, but you fixed it when you posted here?

:point_right: Try again, and cut-and-paste the answer directly from your blockquote above.

No, its the code till challenge task 2 of 3, I don't understand the 3rd question which was "Combine the sundaes list into a new string, joining them with a comma and a space (", "). Use that string with a .format() on our existing menu variable and replace the current value of menu."
