Ant-2 replied, "I live on the sugar-hill. Whenever I feel hungry, I eat it and it tastes very good." Hearing this, Ant-1 asked how does it taste like and if it is similar to the taste of salt. Ant-2 said, "It tastes sweet and it does not taste like salt. If you want, I can take you there and you can taste it on your own as I am not having words to describe it. It can only be experienced." Ant-1 agreed to the invitation and both ants started getting ready for their journey to sugar-hill.
