ATLANTIC CITY - It is Bacon Week at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City and there is no shortage of the popular pork product.

As part of a week long promotion, shops and restaurants at the Tropicana are selling unique bacon-themed items. 

Seaside Cafe has bacon blueberry pancakes, bacon bourbon burgers, bacon pizza, bacon grilled cheese and the fan favorite- a BLT sandwich made with a whole pound of bacon.

There are honey bacon lollipops and bacon dips at the Old Farmer's Almanac General Store. Bill Wigley says customers are drawn to the specialty meat. "Just the smokiness of it," he says. "The flavor in it. You cook bacon and you can smell it a half mile away."

Bacon Bites of Roseland steals the spotlight at Bacon Week with chocolate covered bacon roses, brownies, Twinkies, butter crunch and more. "Nobody seems to care about the cholesterol," says owner Larry Rosenberg.    

Some say the vodka infused with bacon is also a must, as is the  Bacon Bourbon-Glazed Guinness sundae.

Bacon Week runs through Feb. 15.
