The are a few errors in the last statement

  • menu string missing period
  • 'flavors' missing 's'
  • join of sundaes needs comma not semi-colon
  • menu and format need to be in same statement
available = "banana split;hot fudge;cherry;malted;black and white"
sundaes = available.split(';')
menu = "Our available flavors are: {}.".format(", ".join(sundaes))
