If the array is NOT empty, the foreach loop will execute

If the array is NOT empty, the foreach loop will execute. But if it IS empty, we should display a message. Add an else block to the conditional that displays the following message in an HTML paragraph tag: 'There are no flavor recommendations for you.'

what am i getting wrong?

   <?php if (!empty($recommendations)){ 
        echo "<ul>"; 
            foreach($recommendations as $flavor){ 
            echo "<li>". $flavor ."</li>"; 
            } 
      echo "</ul>"; 
        } else {
            echo "There are no flavor recommendations for you.";
    } ?>

you forgot the paragraph tag in your else clause.

echo "<p>There are no flavor recommendations for you.</p>";
