You’ve probably never heard of Calvin Lamborn. But he’s the guy who made sugar snap peas so sweet and succulent that you want to eat them raw. Though edible-podded peas have been enjoyed for hundreds of years, Lamborn accidentally developed snap peas in the late 1960s while breeding shell peas. Though sugar snap peas are a cultivar of snap peas, you’ll most likely see them called “sugar snap peas” at the grocery store.
I eat these suckers like candy. Buy a giant bag from Costco and munch away! They work incredible well when you're craving something crunchy.

I bought a bag of frozen sugar snap peas and cooked them. I was so disappointed since they did not the same, I threw them into the garbage. I have eaten the real small suga snap peas that come in containers with other items. That is why I asked this question. Thank you..I will be consuming Uncooked Sugar Snap Peas from now on!
