Variables and Conditionals. PLEASE HELP I'M STUCK?

<?php $flavour = "vanilla"; echo "<p> Your favourite flavour of ice cream is "; echo $flavour; echo "</p>; echo "<p> Hal's favourite flavour is cookie dough, also!</p>"

QUESTION The message in the final echo command only makes sense if your favourite flavour is the same as Hal's. Add a conditional around that final echo command that checks if the flavour variable has a value of "cookie dough." (Remember to choose carefully between using a single equal sign and a double equal sign in the check.) Preview the code and, if you have a different flavour, make sure the message disappears.?

Your code should look something like this:

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

You only display Hals favorite if the users favorite is cookie dough.

Thanks a lot
