I love the smell of this rich, cheesy soup as it bubbles on the stove. The Gouda cheese adds a delightful smokiness that just says autumn to me.—Kerry Dingwall, Ponte Vedra, Florida

MY REVIEW

"Next time I'm using half the cream and more cheese. Also, I'll try adding extra garlic!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2014

"I thought this was really good, but I did omit the bacon and substituted olive oil for the bacon grease. The subtle smokiness of smoked Gouda really complemented the pumpkin flavor."

"This has been past of our Thanksgiving tradition for 3 years now. The family loves it!"

MY REVIEW

"I too added a little something as there was not quite enough flavor. 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice. It was great."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2013

"I wish I'd had the smoked gouda. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars. I had gorgonzola and liquid smoke. It's just not the same but still rich and creamy!"
