You have the right idea. The challenge checker also checks for the existence of available so it must be retained.

available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(";")

you would want to use this: sundaes=available.split(";"). you need to do this because it is how you assign available to the new variable sundaes. I hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your insight.

I really appreciate ALL the help, and insight
