    In other words, does one speak of eating or drinking soup? There is no hard-and-fast rule - it could depend on whether the soup is thick or thin, and whether it is in a bowl or a mug. – Kate Bunting Feb 25 '19 at 9:15

They both could be correct. It depends on how chunky the mushrooms are and how thick the soup is. To avoid the issue, you could say, "This is the first time that I've ever had mushroom soup".
