Just add '@' before every value that you have inserted in the array in your ViewController.m file

#import "ViewController.h"

@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
    [super viewDidLoad];

    // Add your code below!
  self.shoppingList = [[NSArray alloc]initWithObjects: @"toothpaste", @"bread", @"eggs", nil];

}

@end

Worked like a charm! My bad lol thanks :D
