Sweetheart given break to find mangetout (5,4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sugar snap

Here is my best explanation:

'mangetout' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'sweetheart given break' is the subsidiary indication.

'sweetheart' becomes 'sugar'.

'given break' becomes 'snap' (snapping is a kind of breaking. I am not sure about the 'given' bit.**).

'sugar'+'snap'='sugarsnap'

'to find' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for sugar snap that I've seen before include "Vegetable's", "item of food" and "Mangetout".)
