Lottery ticket buyers in New Hampshire who dream of bringing home the bacon now can smell it, too.

The state lottery has released its first scratch-n-sniff "I Heart Bacon" ticket this month, which features a $1,000 grand prize.

Lottery Commission Executive Director Charlie McIntyre says players "will think it's time for Saturday morning breakfast."

To promote the ticket, the New Hampshire Lottery will be driving a "bacon truck," handing out free applewood smoked bacon samples and tickets at stores in Keene and Durham, the state welcome centers in Hooksett, and the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester.
