I have the dataset similar to the below dummy data

ID       Product
1         Product A
1         Product D
2         Product A
2         Product B
2         Product C

I need the result set to be:
ID           Product
1             Product A, Product D
2             Product A, Product B, Product C

I have tried XML path, but still can't get the query right, any ideas?
