Cannot get foreach loop to output???

I think of the video ahead of this challenge was not as complicated and long i would get this but no matter what i do it won't work. It keeps saying 'name' element??


$flavors = array();
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Cookie Dough",      "in_stock" => true);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Vanilla",           "in_stock" => false);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Avocado Chocolate", "in_stock" => false);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Bacon Me Crazy",    "in_stock" => true);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Strawberry",        "in_stock" => false);

//add your code below this line
foreach ($flavors as $key => $value) {
  echo "$key . $value";

Since each element of the outer array is itself an associative array, you need to use indexing to get to the name. Also, you only need the name of the value (not the key):

  echo "$value[name]";
