It looks like you've added an extra $ character for every time you're referencing a variable in your Template variables. Presumably, because you're trying to differentiate one from the other. But you don't need to do this.

You just need one each time for JavaScript to recognise it is a variable and interpret the name.

const drink = `${flavor}: $${type}: $$${price}:`
