What is wrong with this loopy function?

I need you to help me finish my loopy function. Inside of the function, I need a for loop that prints each thing in items. But, if the current thing is the string "STOP", break the loop.

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
items = ['apples', 'bread', 'water', 'STOP']
    for x in items:
      if x == 'STOP':
        break
    print(x)

You're pretty close. Just remove the items list from the function and add an else where you print the item:

def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
      if item == "STOP":
        break
      else:
        print(item)

Thank you, Kourosh! That helped!
