Earlier today (March 31), Amazon announced that it was expanding its Dash button retail experiment, where customers who really love certain products can choose to order a $5 button to ensure they’re never without those products. The branded, wifi-enabled plastic buttons link to your Amazon account. When you’re running low on something, you push the button, and a new shipment of that product arrives on your doorstep in the next day or so.

Amazon added over 70 new buttons to its repertoire, allowing you to turn your home or office into a vending machine of delayed gratification. Instead of opening Amazon’s app or walking to a computer, you can now order Slim Jims, condoms, coconut water, and other staples from convenient buttons littered throughout your house. But not everything you need to lead a fulfilling life can yet be purchased through the push of a button. Here’s reminder of the few things that Amazon still hasn’t a push button for:

Totino’s Pizza Rolls

1,500 live ladybugs
