While PepsiCo (NASDAQ:PEP) is best known for soda, its lineup features an array of other products such as snacks, cereals, and beverages, sold under popular brands including Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Quaker, and Tropicana. Realty Income (NYSE:O) is a REIT, which means it must pay out at least 90% of its taxable income as dividends, making it ideally suited for the portfolios of dividend seekers. It has been around for more than half a century, and has raised payments at least once a year for more than 25 years.
