Cannot seem to get past this task! Can someone please help? What am I missing?

I have added what I think is correct for this task and cannot seem to get past it. Any help here would be great. I've taken everything I could from the previous video to answer it! My question is with 2nd task in ViewController.m where it asks you to initialize the shopping list with toothpaste, bread and eggs. Keeps giving me error saying to remember to include all three items? Totally at a loss...or I've stared at it too long.

ViewController.h
#import "UIViewController.h"

@interface ViewController : UIViewController

@property (strong, nonatomic) NSString *shoppingCart;
@property (strong, nonatomic) NSArray *shoppingList;

@end
ViewController.m
#import "ViewController.h"

@implementation ViewController

- (void)viewDidLoad {
    [super viewDidLoad];

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

@end

It should be:

self.shoppingList = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects:@"toothpaste",@"bread", @"eggs", nil];

Why should it be that way when that wasn't the way it was solved in the video?
