"Kids love the great taste of Trix cereal! Kids just can't resist those fruity, colorful shapes: wildberry blue, grapity purple, raspberry red, lemony yellow, orangey orange and watermelon.

The Trix rabbit can't resist those fruity, colorful shapes either, but as kids always tell the rabbit 'Silly rabbit, Trix are for Kids.'"T

Which is correct -- Trix IS for kids/Trix ARE for kids?
