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

this is what I put: available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white" sundaes = available.split(";")

I put this several times (it won't let me push get help with my code in it though) and it keeps telling me that there's a syntax error

banana.py
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"

Hey Kelsey,

For the first task, what you have is correct and did pass when I pasted it into the challenge.

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

Give it another shot. It may have just been a glitch. :) :dizzy:
