Still tucking into other special snack (9)


I believe the answer is:


'snack' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'still tucking into other special' is the wordplay.
'still' becomes 'even' ('even' can be a synonym of 'still'**).
'tucking into' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'other' becomes 'else' ('else' can be a synonym of 'other').
'special' becomes 's' (common abbreviation as in Special Air Service).
'even' put into 'else' is 'elevense'.

(Other definitions for elevenses that I've seen before include "tenses found immediately before this?" , "Mid-morning refreshment" , "Mid-morning snack" , "Morning tea or coffee break" , "Refreshments" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
