Why is this code not acceptable?

Looking for some input. This code prints out the desired string, I think.

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

Hi Michael,

in the .join() method remove the parentheses around ", " and your code will pass

display_menu = ", ".join(sundaes)
