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

Why do I keep getting the message below?

Bummer: Cannot read property '1' of null

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

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

You've set two const variables with the same name "drink". The names should be different because const variables can only be assigned unique names or names that don't match.

Thank you!
