Glad you solved the riddle!
IIRC, the Dufour does contain a pound of puff pastry, and it is made with all-butter, as opposed to the PF, which is not made with butter. There's the difference in price. Also, PF is a mass production company, and DuFour is a small, artisan company.
Even at $10+ per pound, I consider the DuFour a bargain, because of the time it takes (not to mention the floury mess) to make the puff pastry myself.
