More excitement with Arrays

I am writing an array with 2 elements. This is my code:

$flavors = (array) "Chocolate","Vanilla";

What's wrong with this array? It keeps saying try again, but gives no hint and it looks correct to me. Please help.

(array) is used to 'cast' the item found to the right of it to an array type object.

If you want to create an array in PHP, you'd need to write code like this:

$flavors = array("Chocolate","Vanilla");
