Hi Mirth –

I vote for snuck but never combined with the word had.  Even though it’s gramatically correct, seems like only Larry the cable guy would use it that way.  😉

Yes, we sophisticated speakers say “had snucken.” 🙂
To be serious, I vote for going by the kind of reader you predict for the work. I think most people are okay with snuck but the more academic reader will expect sneaked.
