How to get the pops out of the popsicle mold?!

I made some pudding pops in the mold I bought yesterday, and I'm afraid they're pretty much stuck in there. Is there an easy way to get them out of there without just pulling the handle out and leaving the rest of the pop in?

Don't know if this will work or not, but maybe if you run some hot water along the plastic side of the mold. That helps get ice cubes out of ice cube trays when they're stuck.

Or fill the sink with warmish water and dunk the bottom of the mold. This is a good way to free up a jello mold, anyway.
