You got 2 out of 3 right, and that's not bad at all! It's just that last little bit that you're missing and it looks like you sort of went overboard here. First, it doesn't ask you to print anything. Secondly, what you need to do can be done all on one line. Take a look at the line you need:

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

Hope this helps and hang in there!

yup just thought of that using string directly instead of variable. :-| thanks Jenny
