Variable and Conditionals code challenge


I'm stuck at task 4 in the code challenge. I change the variable on line 2 to "cookie dough" and I'm still getting an error that this is incorrect. My code is below. I can't figure out where I'm going wrong with this. It seems simple enough; just change the variable, but it doesn't work. I do get the desired result though. Both lines are echoed out as such:

Your favorite flavor of ice cream is cookie dough. Randy's favorite flavor is cookie dough, also!

$flavor = "cookie dough";
echo "<p>Your favorite flavor of ice cream is ";
echo $flavor;
echo ".</p>";
if ($flavor == "cookie dough") {
    echo "<p>Randy's favorite flavor is cookie dough, also!

I ended up going back and starting all over and this time I had no issues. I still don't see what I did differently.

Once in awhile the code challenges will bug out and not work correctly. I have issues once and awhile as well so usually i just refresh the page.

Good to know Christopher. Thanks.
