You are not using the variable you defined in the foreach loop.

What am I doing wrong? Instead of the names, the keys 01234 are echoed to the screen.


$flavors = array();
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Cookie Dough",      "in_stock" => true);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Vanilla",           "in_stock" => false);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Avocado Chocolate", "in_stock" => false);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Bacon Me Crazy",    "in_stock" => true);
$flavors[] = array("name" => "Strawberry",        "in_stock" => false);

//add your code below this line

foreach ($flavors as $flavor => $name) {
  echo $flavor;

I used this code: foreach ( $flavors as $flavor) { echo $flavor['name']; }

You don't have to use the key in the foreach in this case. And you have to use the key in the echo so it's clear what variables you want to echo :)
