The phrase “bringing home the bacon” is about to be taken to a whole new level.

The New Hampshire Lottery has launched its first scratch-and-sniff ticket — the scent du jour? Bacon. In addition to winning a delicious whiff of bacon, the top prize for its “I Heart Bacon Scratch Ticket” is $1,000, reports

“The ‘I Heart Bacon’ scratch ticket combines two things people love: the chance to win cash and the wonderful, enticing smell of bacon,” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.

Each pork-scented ticket costs $1 — a pretty good deal considering a pack of bacon not only costs more, but also takes time (and effort) to cook. Plus, the lottery is handing out the scratch tickets along with free slices of bacon in select locations this week around New Hampshire.

Book your tickets to New England ASAP — free bacon is upon us.
