Blueberry Smoothie Template Literal

Not sure what I'm doing wrong, I answered the problem but the code is coming back that the value of "drink" wrong.

const flavor = "Blueberry";
const type = "Smoothie";
const price = 4.99;

const drink = `${flavor} + ${type}: $${price}`;

Hi Aidan Monaghan

Your code looks very good so far. The problem with your solution is that you are mixing template literals with string concatenation.

When using template literals, like you are in your solution, you don’t need to use the + operator. If you remove this and just leave a blank space between flavor and type your solution should pass.

Hope this helps.
