It's Super Bowl 50 frenzy all around the Bay Area.

From the NFL Experience to Super Bowl City at the Embarcadero, fans are excited for the big game.

Just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco, a few workers are making snacks that will predict the winners of Super Bowl 50.

You can smell the good luck wafting through Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company in Chinatown.

"It comes out and so she peels off and you can make your own message," Kevin Chan of Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Co. said, as he explained how a giant fortune cookie making machine worked.

Since 1962, they have been providing winning lottery numbers and inspirational quotes. This hidden back alley shop has become such an attraction, children come on field trips to tour the factory.

"It's a Chinatown institution. It's been here a long time and I want to support it," customer Tsai Ching said.

Whether it's for the upcoming Chinese New Year or just for fun, Golden Gate is known for their special cookies, where customers can take home one-of-a-kind, personalized cookies.

Our friends at ESPN special ordered Super Bowl 50 fortune cookies here. They'll select one to predict a winner.

We made a few of the cookies ourselves -- one for the Broncos and another for the Panthers.

A few minutes later, we drew the lucky cookie. It looks like it's the Broncos for the win.
