Two Salt Lake Chocolatiers Have Common History

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Two different branches of the Cummings family now own two different 'Cummings' Chocolate shops after a feud in the 1960s split the family. The shops are the heritage of V. Clyde Cummings, who took a cooking class to be in the same room with a girl he liked. The experience led Cummings to make chocolates for friends, and then to start his how business, Cummings Studio Chocolates, in 1924. But when he died in 1959, a feud between his sons, Paul Cummings and C. Kay Cummings led C. Kay to start his own business, C. Kay Cummings Candies. However, Cummings Studio Chocolates, now run by Paul's widow, Marion Cummings, has developed a national reputation and was proclaimed best in the United States by a group of gourmets in the 1980s.
