Gag or Good?

I'm a big fan of and their recipes. This morning, I was sent the following recipe (I'm addicted to recipes. Some I make, some I don't).

I can't decide if it would be completely gross or completely delicious. I enjoy blue cheese and bacon as much as the next red-blooded American gal, but with pumpkin soup?

I don't got good reviews....

Velvety Pumpkin Soup With Blue Cheese and Bacon
2 (15 ounce) cans pumpkin
1 quart chicken stock
1 cup half-and-half
1 shallot, minced
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 slices bacon
1 cup crumbled blue cheese

Stir together the pumpkin, chicken stock, half-and-half, shallot, molasses, butter, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and cayenne pepper in a large stockpot over low heat; simmer 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until crispy; remove to paper towels to drain, then cool and crumble.
Ladle soup into bowls. Top with bacon and blue cheese.

It sounds so gross it has to be good. I love too. Better than any cookbook out there.

No way, I am pretty open minded but no. Just no.

I saw that EXACT same vision this morning. Unfortunately it was on the kitchen floor next to the passed out cat.
