If I had to guess, because I just did that test just now and passed with a similar anaswer....

I'd have to say that the period on the outside of your string is causing an "unknown error" which will sometimes default to "Task 1 is no longer passing" on teamtreehouse.

It looks like you might have copy and pasted it from the instructions so you grabbed the period on accident.

My passing code...

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