I used cream-style sweet corn which made the soup too sweet for my taste. But despite the sweetness, I felt the soup was missing something.

This was real "corny" and good!! I left out the bacon as none was on hand in the house but I did add a bit of liquid smoke instead. I like the flavour it produced. Good soup!!
