Can't figure out the final string

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

Doesn't work no matter how many times I rewrite it.

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

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

Try removing the first line starting with const drink since constants can't be redeclared or reassigned.

Instead of const price = "4.99";, price should be set to const price = 4.99;
