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

Bummer: The value of drink doesn't seem to match the original string......What am I getting wrong?

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

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

You're very close, but the original string did not have a space between the type and the colon.
