From the following

Canton Black Bean
Sweet Choy Mein
Honey and Cor
Peking Lemon
Oyster and Spring Onion
Szechuan Tomato

Please???? I refuse to spend £1.20 on a jar from which I only need 2 tablespoons - so these are the cheaper (and smaller) alternatives.....

What are you going to do with it? Is it for duck?

and can't you find a recipe for it instead?

It's to go in a "Moo Shu Stir-Fry" (served in Tortillas)

It's vegetable (and egg), rice vinegar, soy sauce etc etc in it.

I'm not sure I could find a recipe for 2 tablespoons of Hoisin sauce for which the ingredients cost less than 43p LOL

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I think I would use barbecue sauce over any of the ones you've listed

anyone else??? Need to decide soon as DH will be taking us to do the shopping in the next hour or so - and I don't want to be still sitting wondering about stir fry sauce
