stuck on the split and join exercise

I'm starting from scratch, square one with learning coding through python. As you can see here, I did something wrong. I just don't know what I am missing. I've tried a few different ways to no avail.

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

so close, nearly there

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(display_menu))#what does the display_menu have at the moment
display_menu = sundaes.join(", ") #if you think, what does display_menu, had at the above line, you can decide this line

@PeterFalcone Did you ever complete this exercise?
