Question Snap Peas - Dumb Question

The only thing I can find around here are called sugar snap peas. And ok the word sugar makes all of the bells and whistles go off but aren't they the same thing as snap peas? If not what is the difference and are they an OP food?

Yes, they are the same thing. And they're yummy! You eat the pod and everything (I usually remove the "string" that is on one side of the pod.) I steam them until they are tender-crisp. They are different from snow peas which are flatter.
