I come up with a fair number of challenges for myself, but they are usually based on achieving something, so for 2013 I decided to do one just for fun.

Once I mentioned it to my friends they started quizzing me about it and wanted more detail than Twitter was designed for, so I got talked into writing a blog on it:

http://100biscuits.blogspot.co.uk/

A worthy challenge I hope you'll agree.

Any feedback or comments welcomed, I'm pretty thick-skinned (and will be even thicker skinned after all the biscuits I eat)!

Brilliant! :D

As a fellow biscuit lover, I approve of your challenge.

Looking forward to when you run out of mainstream biscuits.

from the title I was expecting 100 biscuits in a minute - hard, an hour, too easy, but I question that for a challenge I think this is too much fun (although I thoroughly approve as do like biscuits myself as well) rather than really taxing...........bit like a sponsored cycle ride unless the pace is to secure a place in Team Sky ?

Question - how many different types of biscuit are there ?

a worthy challenge would be to line up 100 different biscuits and jump over them Evel Kenevel stylee.

They are cakes as they go hard when stale whereas biscuits go soft

It's a cake, made on a sponge cake.
I believe it was also proven in court to be a cake by McVities BiTD or something like that, besides the name gives it away ;) NOTHING to do with avoiding VAT I'll have you know.

I deliberately didn't think about this beforehand so as to keep things exciting, but I'm sure it's an issue I'll cross and discuss during the year.

Don't encourage me!

I agree that Jaffa Cakes are definitely cakes. I'm sure there will be other varieties up for discussion before the year is out.
