"I agree with the other reviews. This is so tasty and easy to prepare. My hubby and I actually like the sligtly sweet taste from the creamed corn and I also add some frozen corn to the mix. I process 1 1/2-2 cups soup in the food processor then add back to the pot for extra some texture. Add chopped ham after processing. YUM"

"The cream corn made this soup a little to sweet for me. I also ended up adding a bit of hot sauce and thyme to give it some kind of taste."

"I add a tbsp of Thyme at the end - making this my favorite corn chowder. I made this all winter and will continue through summer into the fall with fresh corn!"
