It should be $flavor = get_flavor();

No need to add return since in the function it is already returning a value. Also, get_flavor is a function, so you need to add () to the end of it and no $ in front of it. It is a function, not a variable.

Variable = $name Function/Method = function_name() // calling the function/method
