The products are $\text{NaCl}$ and $\text{H"_2"O}$.

#### Explanation:

This reaction is one of the most common neutralization reactions, in which an acid and a base combine to form a salt and water.

The "salt" is the ionic compound formed from the cation of the base and the anion of the acid, which will be $\text{NaCl}$. The reaction is

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{H")color(red)("Cl")(aq) + color(red)("Na")color(blue)("OH") (aq) rarr color(red)("NaCl") (aq) + color(blue)("H"_2"O}} \left(l\right)$

In summary, for a neutralization reaction, the acid (specifically a Brønsted-Lowry acid) and the base (a Brønsted-Lowry base) combine to form a salt and water.
