 Maska Chaska: Tasty - Tasty Biscuits

The city of Chaska received its name from a Dakota word naming the first-born son.

However what does "Chaska" mean in Hindi?

I keep seeing the word pop up on Indian products. A friend recently brought me this package of "Tasty - Tasty Biscuits," called "Maska Chaska," made in India and purchased at an Indian foods store.

Does anyone have any idea?

Two years after asking the question “What does Chaska mean in Hindi?” I finally found out.
A big thanks to resident Dan Doenges, who spotted a “Chaska” movie poster in India while on a business trip. After e-mailing me his discovery, he then tracked down the word’s meaning which is … (drum roll) … “addiction.”
I’m not quite sure how the city can use that to market itself. Perhaps “Chaska, the best small-town addiction in Minnesota.”
In any case, I’m hoping Bollywood discovers us soon. I’m picturing a big dance sequence in City Square Park during River City Days.
Does anyone have Shahrukh Khan’s number?

A Bollywood song/dance number called “Chaska Mera Chaska” is the first video that pops up when you type “Chaska” in YouTube’s search engine: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oa-JPLXQ6cs
There is also an advertisement for a strange Peruvian Cirque Du Soleil-esque production called “Chaska”: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqArgfp5Qd4.
So apparently “Chaska” means many things in many languages — although I still have no idea exactly what.

I found a DVD with the title Chaska over at ebay. Its a hindi film. I won’t post the link here because of its erotic nature – but it appears it means “An Addiction”
The title is “Chaska(An Addiction)”. It can be yours for $4.45 plus s&h!
Butter Addiction?
Interesting…..

“Maska” is a western India word for butter. My sources are still tracking down the meaning of “Chaska.”

I don’t care what it means half as much as how those tasty-tasty biscuits taste. Either the tasty-tasty equals real good or real bad. Open them!
