Can guinea pigs eat sugar snaps? Snap peas, also known as sugar snap peas, are a cultivar group of edible-podded peas that differ from snow peas in that their pods are rounded as opposed to flat and thicker.

The name mangetout (French for “eat all”) can apply both to snap peas and snow peas.

Snap peas, like all other peas, are pod fruits. An edible-podded pea is similar to a garden, or English, pea, but the pod is less fibrous, and edible when young.  (source)
