Voiceflow voice bot - set/if block

I’m having trouble when I run voice bot where I have Set block to set varServiceType=‘haircut’ and use IF condition to send to the right blocks (e.g. IF {varServiceType} ==‘haircut’ → path → block2).

When I run prototype, instead of going to the right value that was set (I confirmed that {varServiceType is set to ‘haircut’), I get a bubble in chat that asks me to choose between two if statement conditions. Am i setting this correctly?

Actually figured out - this was because of debug mode. also need to not include ‘foo’ or “foo”
