I keep getting this error "Make sure you're including `: $` immediately after `type` and before `price`."

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

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

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

I've tried:

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

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

and

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

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

You were getting closer!

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

Thank you so much. I don't think I would have realized I needed to remove the + signs for a while.

I am glad I could help.

I had this answer already but still getting error

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

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

Are you using the back ticks around the template literal? And it looks like you have an extra $ in price and a . instead of ; at the end. The solution above by Shem Ogweno helped me.
