How many relatively common singular nouns can you think of that, when you remove an "s", become a relatively common plural noun?
For example: PRINCESS (singular) becomes PRINCES (plural).
I know of at least four more, one of which only has one "s" to begin with.
It seems "saltines" no longer needs capitalization, except in some countries where it still has trademark protection, and so saltiness/saltines should be acceptable.
