The S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats index, which tracks these stocks, has outperformed the S&P 500 index by an average of 3.2 percentage points a year over the last decade on a total return basis, according to S&P.

Besides its amazing performance, there's something else that stands out about the Dividend Aristocrats index. It is heavily weighted toward consumer-staples stocks. In fact, 26% of the Dividend Aristocrats index is allocated to consumer-staples stocks. Click here to see a list of all 50 Dividend Aristocrats.

Consumer staples has an advantage over most other industries: longevity. Some industries change quickly. Google (now Alphabet) didn't even exist 20 years ago. Facebook didn't exist 15 years ago. The technology industry changes rapidly. This is bad news for established businesses, which have to constantly reinvent themselves to keep pace.

Consumer-staples stocks tend to be extremely stable. Here are four that have rewarded shareholders with increased dividends for at least 25 years.

The following table includes 12 Dividend Aristocrats that are in consumer goods (apparel, beverages, cleaning, food and personal care) businesses.

These are the results...
