Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types Use .split() and .join()

Task 1 no longer working in Python Basics .join and .split

I am not sure what to do here. I passed the first two tasks and when I do what I think is correct for the 3rd task, it says that task 1 no longer passes. What is the correct way to "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."

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

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

Oh you're very close! It's the join part that's a little out of order. Take a look at my menu line and see if you can spot where it went wrong:

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

Thank you Jennifer!
