I think println() can only take one string, so you'll need to contain all the items within a single pair of quotes, like this: "BreadMilkHoney"

As for the newline characters, those also have to be inside a string. So simply place \n characters appropriately in the string "BreadMilkHoney".

\n stays in the quotations. Also you don't need it before bread.
