    Incorrect. Colons should be used after a complete sentence.

    Recap • Colons are used after a complete sentence to begin listing items • Colons introduce block quotes • Colons follow the salutations of a business letter • Dashes are used between times, dates, and forms of indexing • Parentheses are used to include information that wouldn’t normally fit into the flow of your text

    should I use a semi colon instead? @NeonStrawsForever

    The correct version would be; She had many groceries written on the list, bread, eggs, milk, and ice cream.

    No, neither would a semicolon work.
