Convert concatenated strings to drink variable

The value of drink doesn't seem to match the original string. Im confused because I feel like I declared this variable

app.js
const flavor = "Blueberry";
const type = "Smoothie";
const price = 4.99;

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

Hello Trevor,

The output of this drink variable is Blueberry + Smoothie: $4.99 So What's your question again?

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

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

console.log(drink);
//Blueberry + Smoothie: $4.99

I apologize, after I input the above referenced code, I get an error message that says the variable "drink" doesnt match the original string. I wasnt sure what I was doing wrong.
