Hydrogen Chloride will ionize in water completely, since it's a strong acid, to give H+ and Cl- ions. The pH will be low...acidic.

But the molecules of Sucrose in water will still remain molecules. They will not ionize or "dissociate" into separately moving ions. That's because HCl is ionic but Sucrose is molecular.
