    They dissolved into the water, forming a mixture.

    Explanation:

    The salt is sodium chloride (NaCl) and the sugar is a dissacharide which contains many hydroxyl groups (-OH). Both of them are very soluble in water, but they will not start a chemical reaction between themselves.

    Dissolving them in water will form a mixture of chloride ions (Cl⁻), sodium ions (Na⁻) and sugar molecules.
